    The individual leaf looks like that, but like i said, it's growing up, like a stalky plant, like nepenthes... I think it is rotundifolia...

    How do the stems attach themsevles to the circles. Is it like a spoon or is it like a saucer balancing at the end of a vertical stick.

    That helps and yes thats kind of what I meant. Were does the stem connect to the saucer on the bottom of the saucer or on its rim.

    Hey don't cut off the flower it could help you find out what it is. I think its a climbing sundew from the description, but that seems highly unlikely.

    From your description combined with the fact that it came from a local store makes me think it is mos likely d. rotundifolia. I very much doubt it is a climbing tuberous drosera. Most drosera leaves will somwhat curl around prey. This one needs winter dormancy, you can let if flower without killing the plant.
