    Hi everyone.

    I've got a couple of Drosera that came as hitchhikers on some Sarra's. I'm not overly up to pace on Drosera so I was hoping you could confirm my tentative ID.

    This first I believe is D. spatulata. Yes? If so would anyone hazard a more accurate ID of the form?



    This next shot is the finished flowers (flowers were done by the time I received the host plants):



    I have actually been collecting seed from the above Drosera and would like to try raising it. I have a small commercial seed raising container and was planning to lay the seeds on moist 1:1 peat:sand, give it a spray down, cover and place in my Nepenthes glasshouse. Sound OK?

    Next is this little (and I mean little) beauty:



    I could no narrow this one down due to it being such an immature plant. Any idea?

    Thanks,

    Aaron.

    I would say the first is likely D. spatulata, and the second is D. binata for sure.

    WOW - that was quick.

    Thanks for that ID. Now off to do some researching on how to care for these guys.

    I find they grow with my sarras just fine! Why not just keep them together?

    Looks like that binata has quite the appetite! It's all curled around something. Nice pics. I also agree that the top one looks like spatulata. You should have no trouble with the seeds.

    Those conditions would be about ideal, except possibly in the winter months, but you could transplant the D. spatulata before the first frosts. I think the D. binata (although small) would survive a temperate dormancy.
