    I grow this plant since two years. The seed is viable -> no hybrid.

    I looked into Diels Drosera book and the flower and leafs seems to show a Drosera natalensis.

    What do you believe?

    P.S. : (Please do not post: " It looks like a spatulata" It is definitively not spatulata - look at the flower details)

    Hi Rico, I think it's one of these;



    but that's all I can tell you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]. My plants came as seed from the UK CPS Seed Bank as D. burkeana, but don't look like other growers forms of this species and I don't know what it is either. The leaves on your plants look very similar to mine, particularly the hairy, flat petioles, though my plant looks hairier. My plant is about to flower in the next few weeks, I'll soon know if they are also the same as yours. I'm very interested in any I.D. ideas with this one too.

    Cheers

    Vic

    Looks like a plant that I used to grow years ago under the name of Drosera sp. Cape South Africa.

    Does not look like a D. natalensis to me. The lamina appears to be too rounded. I guess there is a huge amount of variation with D. natalensis though, so who knows it might be.

    Are you sure it's not D. spatulata? (only joking!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    Hi Rico,
    Looking at the flower I would say that that plant is infact D. natalensis

    Vic, your plant is very similar to Ricos, but i don't think it is the same one. Mainly because of the hairy petioles in your plant. I would really like to see stipules of your plants.

    Now, I know it is a real Drosera natalensis!!! The flower details show it clearly. A german Drosera expert verified this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks to all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
