    D. capensis' leaves are long and upright and get wider at the ends.

    Are you saying you've seen D. peltata at Lowes? You must be mistaken. I can pretty much guarantee Lowes does not sell D. peltata. That's a tuberous sundew and pretty hard to find in the U.S.

    The only sundews I've seen/heard of Lowes selling is mostly D. adelae, an occasional D. capensis and someone said D. intermedia although I'm not sure about that either. You sure can't just go pick up a tuberous sundew at Lowes...although that would be nice! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I bought a vft a few years back and in the pot was an upright sundew with circular traps....an interlooper. It didn`t survive though.

    Hey Flip

    When asking for an ID on a plant...its helpful to have as much description as you can provide if you don't have a pic (size, color, leaf shape, growth habit, etc.). Saying "it comes from Lowes" does eliminate many possibilities but with a litte description, I'm sure it could be ID'ed.

    Does the plant grow upright with leaves coming off a central stem? Or does it grow flat to the ground in a rosette? If it is growing upright off a stem, are the leaves lance-like and pointed with tentacles all over the leaf? Or does it come out in a long thin "arm" with an long, ovalish "paddle" on the ends of the stem with tentacles only on the "paddle"?

    If it has the sticky "paddles", its D. capensis; if it has the longer, lance-like leaves covered in tentacles, it is D. adelae. D. adelae is most often the drosera found at Lowes.

    Hope this solves your problem. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
