    I got a plant at lowes about 2 weeks ago and it is what looks to be a drosera adelea but its not rosetted,its leaves are growing up a stem, do drosera adelea do this? It seems to be growing well in very warm temperatures, i was under the impresion that D.adelea did not fare well in temps in the 80 and 90's. Any body have any idea what i have ?


    thanks

    Adelae is indeed a stem former, and there are few species that have leaves similar to adelae, and these you would not find at Lowe's. Your plant is almost certainly adelae.

    If it was a Botanical Wonders plant, in a square box...

    Then it is D. adelae.

    I have not seen any other plant that they offer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Its a adelea then, it was a botanical wonders plant in a square box, with a S. purpea and a venus fly trap. little expensive, but good starters for my little brother,he paid for them so hes bound to take good care of them, hopefully.
    I gave him a drosera capensis a large venus fly trap a beautiful little S. purpea and a S. leucophyla a while ago and he let them die. So these are kinda test plants to see wether or not hes worhty of more. But i cant help but to admit when i saw that drosera adelea alive and gleeming among all those withering plants my heart skipped a beat and i probely would have spent my whole budget for the month to save that one plant.
