    I obtained this plant as possibly a nearly all-green Drosera capillaris, but after growing it in my conditions for a few weeks it looks most like a Drosera spatulata. Any opinions? It is about to flower and I will post images of them here when they open.

    It looks like capillaris from the Northern U.S., but IDing "Drosera roundandstickya" is never easy without the scapes and flowers. In this case, no stipules (hairs in the center of the plant) are prominent, so capillaris has my vote.

    Could go either way. Try to get a shot of the scape when it flowers, the arrangement of the buds will nail it.

    Well, here is a photo of the flower stalk, several flowers are finished blooming. I have not yet caught a flower when it was open, but I will keep trying.

    The scape looks like capillaris to me. It appears glabarous: without stalked or sessile glands. Spatulata has both types of glands on the scape Spatulata scapes have a one sided appearance, and the sepals tips are not closed back over the fruit: a condition found only in spatulata.

    Another rule of thumb: spatulata has prominent stipules in the plants center. Capillaris has stipules as well, but not as prominent.

    Capillaris is very variable, as is spatulata. This often causes initial confusion. This looks like the Northern U.S. form of capillaris vs. the long arm Southern U.S. form.
