    Hi Damon,

    My plants are grown in very strong light and so develop a nice red coloration and a neat compact rosette. It is possible that if yours were grown in lower light conditions the rosettes could be larger. I'm not exactly sure how large admirabilis is supposed to get in darker conditions. How much light do yours receive?

    I've seen plants from different South African locations in other collections which seem to show a bit of variation (to mine at least)- whilst still identifiable as admirabilis.

    Regards,

    Sean.

    It is possible that the plant is D.aliciae.

    Hi,

    I'm late to this thread, but I have a couple of these.

    Here's my D. venusta. Is it legit? I dunno, but it's cool!

    And a D. dielsiana:

    Capslock <-- would appreciate feedback on whether these are as labeled!

    I really don't know about the conditions this plant was grown in...I recently purchased it at a CP society meeting. I believe it was grown in strong sunlight because the sphagnum moss had burned tips. It could possibly be admiralibis, but till I get a pic posted (and that won't happen till I get funds for a new digi-cam) I won't know. As to it being aliciaea, definitely not. I grow several aliciaea from several sources, and none of them are similar to this. I think that I'll take a pic with a regular cam and post it from a CD.

    Thanks for the suggestions though:

    Hi Capslock,

    Your first picture looks like Drosera or venusta to ( I still can't see differences in my plants). The second one is hard to say. As far as i know, Drosera dielsiana has hairy scapes. The ones of your plant look as if they are glabrous, so i would reject Drosera dielsiana. A better help would be, if you could post a picture of the rosette and/or the flowers.

    Christian,

    I'll try to get a photo of the flowers tomorrow. They open and close while I'm at work, unfortunately, and there are only about two left. I did notice that the stalks are somewhat hairy, though. It didn't show up in the picture, but in person, they are there.

    Hi,

    Here are two better pictures of my Drosera venusta and my Drosera coccicaulis, as well as one of my Drosera madagascariensis.

    I sprouted some D.affinis few weeks ago I got from an order of seeds from the UK I made in spring... plantlets are well formed enough to be able to tell that... they are mis-IDEd! I got (again!&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] a mysterious rosetted sundew instead of this semi-erect african beauty... Man, this is frustrating... I am waiting to see if D.coccicaulis, cuneifolia are alright... I hate to wate money this way... well it is not a total lost, sicne I have the mysterious plants... but it is a big deception!
