    Oh my gosh ... I am so laughing right now... not sure if to cry at the mislabelling

    Ok, so here's my Drosera natalensis:

    This is a D. capillaris.

    Assuming I have these labeled correctly, the little rosettes in the pot with the D. capensis and D. nidiformis, all the way to the left, are D. tokaiensis.

    Nice plants you have there NatchGreyes.

    My capillaris looks nothing like yours, or does my tokaiensis . I wish these was a Drosera expert here in Trinidad to take a good look at my plants and figure out what they are.

    I want to add here that the D. capillaris I have is rather large for the species. It's not the 'long arm' cultivar. (Though, to be honest, I've always thought the 'long arm' cultivar is bogus, if only because it's not really distinct).

    You can see a video of a few different D. capillaris below:


    And, some pictures can be found here - http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-long-arm-quot

    Looked through your album, looks to me like what you have IDed is correct, except for the few plants you've listed here. I think the plants in your first post might be capillaris. Personally, I'd put a few in higher light to see how they color up then repost. For whatever reason, plants in lower lighting can look a little different.

    Thanx a million NatchGrayes for your help on the matter. Between you and Hcarlton I think I'm a little more settled and can definitely ID the second pic in the post as D. capillaris. I'll take your advice and see if I can get some of the greener ones to "color up" with some more exposure to sunlight and post some pics later on.

    Here's another shot of what I have labeled as D. tokaiensis. Again, I'm not 100% that's what it is.



    Oh, and I forgot to mention flower color. D. capillaris will have white or (rarely) very pale, almost white, pink flowers. D. tokaiensis and D. dielsiana will have purple flowers. Mine have very bright, purple flowers.

    I noticed on wikipedia that some D. capillaris pictures have bright pink flowers. I can't see the plant, but I believe these are mislabeled. I can't recall ever seeing a D. capillaris with such bright flowers.
