    I rescued (I hope hehehe) three droseras and they're probly the healthiest cp's I've ever seen at lowes. They must have just got them in.

    Well I bought all the living ones (3 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] ) and would like to know what kind they are I have a inkling that they are capensis. I'm trying to remeber way back in the day when I used to have some. Having trouble remembering the names, hehehe, need to restudy....

    thanks for any help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I have only seen D. Adelae at Lowes, though LenG444 told me he has gotten a D. spatulata. I have no mature Capensis (believe it or not) so I can't post a picture. They should be pretty easy to find though. Try going here Photos

    thanks for the link, I still can't figure out what I got. I'll have to post a pic some how.

    I transplanted the three into a makesift terrarium and they are doing even better now, all three of them are sending out new leaves quite fast.

    do you have a picture of that? perhaps thats what it is. But they had two types when I was there I got the ones that looked heathy. The ones that were dying were low to the soil and the leaves were very broad.

    When I went to Lowes to see if they had something I didn't have I saw what was termed as a sundew, with nothing more than telling me it was a Drosera. I already knew that! So I did what I've been doing all along - I went to the internet and searched until I determined that what they had was an adelae. It was confirmed by others commenting about the Lowes sundew. Now, looking at Capensis, there is similarity in that they both have elongated leaf shapes as opposed to capillaris, rotundifolia, intermedia, spatluata, etc... Is it possible that capensis is being confused for adelae?
