    Drosera aliciae in South Africa

    Hi,

    before switching to the (at least in cultivation) rarer southafrican species (regia, alba, hilaris, ericgreenii, cistiflora and some more) i will show you pictures of Drosera aliciae in habitat. The pictures have all been taken at the Constantia Nek. I will add pictures of other locations later.

    Hi,

    William, that plant should be Drosera aliciae. I have taken a look on other pics i made of this plant (not good ones to show) and i think i am right. The petioles in D. admirabilis (the only other possiblity) should be shorter and there should be no hairs in the middle of the plant if it was D. admirabilis.

    regards,
    Christian
