    I'm no expert with the tuberous Drosera, but possibly neesii.
    I'll forward your photo to a friend in Australia and let you know what I hear when I get back from the honeymoon.

    Thanks Tamlin,

    I hope that there would be one person who will be able to identify my plant. Otherwise I will name it Drosera martinii :-)

    Maybe I'm looking the wrong way.
    I had used the following sheme :

    1. erect tuberous Drosera
    2. hairy
    3. leaf shap and atachement

    ... no matches found

    if hairs are only a minor charakteristicum my way of searching was completly wrong.

    It is definitly not Dr. neesii ssp neesii or ssp. borealis (both described in Lowrie Vol. I)

    I can't add much to the ID discussion, I've looked in Lowrie and the much older Erickson 'Plants of Prey' and have to agree that with the arrangement of the petioles and the concave, circular lamina D. huegelii, is probably closest. Is it showing any signs of flowereing? If it's D. huegelii it's probably got at least another 10cms to go, but flowers should definately help ID this plant.

    How did you obtain this plant?, was it supposed to be something else or did it just pop up in a pot of something else? If you obtained it as a tuber, can what you remember of it's morphology, colour etc help?

    I bought it in a set of unlabelled tubers from Allen Lowrie. Sorry, I can't remember the color of the tuber and it is to early to dig it out. The plant will not flower this season because it has almost died back completly (adjusting to Northern hemnisphere).

    I hope to get a flower next growing season.

    If it IS Dr. huegelii it would be very nice, too.

    I don't think there are any cultivars of tuberous Drosera.
