    I have been around and around with this plant, received as D. natalensis which ID was confirmed by Robert Gibson. It seems very atypical to me if it is D. natalensis (there is only so much to see in a photo without a flower&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. Recent photos of Debbert's new species novae D. afra are reminiscent of this plant. I believe other authors lean towards accepting this species novae as a form of D. trinervia. I am burning to ID this plant, if anyone can assist.

    Taking a wild guess here and that Tamlin meant to put this in the Drosera forum.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Oh what fun. It looks a lot like the plant I had 10 years ago called "sp 8 Borneo", which I thought was decided was spatulata. Just what you wanted to hear, someone chiming in about a plant from a different continent entirely, lol.

    Tamlin,

    If that is the D. sp 'Borneo' then the information from Joe is word for word what I have gotten from 3 other sources about my plant.

    I vote we register this as a spatulata cultivar: D. 'Mini Me' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Not to add to the confusion, but a so called "D.venusta" which was sold to me looks very much like that. I have dubbed it "D.venusta-fraud" Who know?

    Zach,

    D. venusta and D. natalensis are considered nearly synonomous by some taxonomists. Mine came as D. natalensis. PM me if you are willing to tell me your source. This plant is a real teaser!

    I do not think the plant is D. spatulata (but after the "Tamlinosa" merry go round I will never again be sure I have seen it all regarding the many forms this species has&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    My plant wasted away to nearly nothing after flowering, and did nothing by way of growth until this winter when I repotted into fresh medium. The first photo shows the plant springing to life again. This photo was taken last summer as the plant began to flower.
