    your unkown drosera under the pic of the adeale is most likely a spatulata, probabaly D.spatulata 'kansai', the one that came as burkeana looks like D.dielsiana.

    I've been hearing a lot about D.dielsiana these past few days...is it the season or is it just a cool plant to talk about? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    The p;ant in the corner does have a lot in common with D. dielsiana, but it also looks like a plant I grow which was circulated back in the 70's and 80's by World Insectivorous Plants under the name of D. burkeana. This plant is not D. burkeana, but it has some differences from D. dielsiana as well, so I speculate that it is a possible hybrid of these two closely related South Africans.

    Drosera schizandra is another of the 3 "Queensland Sisters" native to Queensland, Australi, the other being D. prolifera. D. schizandra is very close to D. adelae, except it is even more fussy in cultivation. Seeing Zongyi's plant of D. adelae leads me to suppose he could grow an excellent specimen of D. schizandra. The lamina of Zongyi's plant is very green and healthy: no fungus involvement at all, and this is what D. schizandra loves. The largest specimen I have ever seen had leaves just this shade and quality. The leaves were as broad as my palm.

    Jason, D. dielsiana is a very variable species, the third largest in Africa. It is a heck of a lot of fun to grow different batches and compare the plants. Because of the wide variability, I tend to define the species mostly from its
    seed. If this species isn't making the rounds in your neck of the woods, PM me and I will send some seed off to you. It's a very nice species, an easy grower although it is somewhat weedy in my collection. I grow about 5 different looking forms.
