    Hey everyone this Drosera was labeled D.Capensis but it looks SIMILAR to D.Adelae EXCEPT the leave bases ar too far away from the stem. Any ideas? Is it Capensis? It is the one on the left, I also put it next to Adelae (which is on the right [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ) for convience in comparing.

    No, Lowe's. It doesn't seem to be an Adelae though. It's leave bases are too far away from the stalk. i have another Adelae about that size and it has it's leaves right up to it's stalk.

    Is it a wide leaf capensis? Is the leaf uncurling like a nep (just like adelae), or like a cape?

    It uncurls like Nepenthes but it opens like a butterwort leave AFTER it has uncurled and expanded the leaf base.
