    some people said that it was a large form of capensis which i highly doubted . i believe that it is a large form of cappilaris but somepeople said that pft would probably never sale the plant and if they did it must've come out the private collection which i think is what happened . nice plant though .

    Well Im no expert, but that doesnt look like any capensis Ive ever seen.... It does look a lot like capillaris though. My vote is capillaris.

    This is in no way Drosera capensis! Possibly it is D. capillaris though, and I suppose it could be considered a large form for that species. Pondboy, you need to change your plant label.

    yah pond boy , that plant can be no way capensis so gotta change the label before you start a confusion . the plant is small at the moment , its in a regular pft pot so i will have to wait til the plant actually earns its reputation as being a true giant .

    Cool

    Yes, I agree. It is not a capensis. It probably is a D. capillaris "giant". I purchased one from a local nursery not too long ago.

    By the way, this brings me to a question I have for you all. My D. capillaris "giant" was a very nice red coloration when I bought it, but the existing leaves died back, and the new leaves are a bright green. It's in the same conditions as my other rosette drosera, such as my spat (see my sundew image upper left side of my posts).... so it is getting a good amount of light. My question is: is the green leaves due to some kind of shock? Any ideas?

    thanks,
    Homer

    Homer, I have found that all of my Drosera only achieve their true coloration in direct unfiltered sunlight. Try that and see if you can get them to redden up a bit. Im sure I dont need to tell you to acclimate them slowly ect ect [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] hehe

    good luck
