    Unhappy

    Hi,

    I have a tuberous Drosera which I can't identify.

    - It has a single erect, undiveded stem (about 15cm tall, maybe it can get bigger)
    - it didn't produce a basal rosette
    - the petioles are about 8-10mm long and arranged one "left", followed by one "right" (I don't know the English word for "wechselständig"). The distance between the petioles is about 10mm
    - the leafes are perfectly circle-shaped (3-4mm in diameter), all of the outer glands have the same lenght (about 3-4mm)
    - the leaf is pointed down
    - it is slightly concave

    I looked at Allen Lowrie's books and the most similar plant maching this descripion seems to be Drosera huegelii...

    BUT :
    - the leafes are not very broadly(!) campaniform and not deeply(!) concave.
    - the stem (and petioles) are covered with many white hairs (1mm in length) pointing downwards !!!!


    My plant didn't flower yet and I can't discribe the tuber at the moment. I also don't have a picture...

    Would be very interested to read your suggestions...

    Just a guess here Martin but maybe a peltata?

    Hi,

    thank you !

    I grow Dr. pelatata, too...

    it builds a basal rosette, the leaves are not circle shaped, glands have different length, the stem is not hairy !

    It is not auriculata, macrantha, menziesii, gigantea, peltata, salina, andersoniana and heterophylla
    I grow all of these erect tuberous Drosera and all look different...

    Thank you Tony,

    I know this excellent site, of course...
    but none of the pctures matches my plant.

    But it is not easy to detect, if the plant is hairy or not.

    I have the 3 books from Allen Lowrie (2nd only as a copy) and I wasn't able to identify my plant.
    maybe my growing conditions are not optimal, so the plant doesn not look like it should...
    or it is a variety (maybe someone knows which plant ?)
    or it is a Drosera not mentioned in Allens books ? (and at cephalotus.net)

    I made a picture today (don't know if it has a aceptable quality, because it was very windy) and maybe I can post in in some weeks (after developing and scanning the slide)

    Martin

    Here is a picture, maybe it's easier to identify it now. It reached about 20cm without flowering
