    Drosera capillaris was the very first sundew I ever grew. It was not always one of the easiest for me to grow either, but once I had seen them in the Southeast covering the ground for scores of acres, it was awesome and quite inspiring. After seeing them growing so vigorously and prolifically in the wild I extrapolated what I was neglecting them in cultivation, provided it and have had good success with them ever since.

    Here is one of my favorite forms to get this started:

    The seed this plant was grown from was collected near the U.S. Naval Hospital, Pensacola, Florida in a roadside ditch where I also discovered the near red-pigment-free form of the same species.



    The flowers of this one are larger too, like the plant, and lighter pink than the Meadowview plants.

    Another form was obtained from Meadowview Biological Research Station: Image follows.



    Under the same conditions, it is a much smaller plant and has a stronger red coloration, with strongly pink flowers.

    Hey Goldtrap, your plants seem to have wide lamina, they could be D.spatulata.... You'll have to check the seeds to be sure with a magnifying glass. If they're full of grooves or smooth, they're spatulata, if they're bumpy/ lumpy, they're capillaris.

    I am currently growing a whole batch of these plants from seed. Infact I noticed today the first flowerstalk on this plant. 3 others also have flowerstalks... Anyway, you can tell from the picture this plant is still pretty young. I hope it shows what you are looking for.
