    it is mostly D.capensis 'Giant' as there is presumely a varaint of capensis that gets larger then the common varaints right now. I have yet to here of capillaries 'giant'. Capensis does have rosseted leves when younger, much like all other drosera.

    I doubt pft would get a hold of d. capensis 'giant', though I did think that I had seen giant forms of d. capillaris in the tc market.

    If your plant look similar to aliciae as you say, then it is more likely to be capillaris than capensis.

    if it looks like

    then it is d. capensis.

    If it is smaller and rosetted, similar to d. spatulata, then it is more likely to be capillaris.

    cheers,

    You can find numerous photos of both species at this site. Scroll down to the appropriate species.

    You got this plant from Phil? I don't think he has ever sold capillaris much less a giant form of it. He has sold capensis though. You could clear this up by asking him.

I think there were some plants from a personal collection, so perhaps it came from that and not store stock. ?? Dunno.
