    I was looking around the net and noticing lots of I guess location names for Drosera spatulata.
    My guess from looking around would be kansai or Hong Kong (maybe not red enough).
    Just curious if any one could help me out. Thoughts?

    The plants grow about 2" and the flowers are white.

    This is the typical form of the Queensland Drosera spatulata, as evidenced by the broad petioles with stalked glands extending almost to the center of the plant (The Kansai form is more like a spoked wheel with spoon shaped traps forming abruptly at the ends of the hairless petioles), and by the white flower you mentioned. Similar plants go by the name of Fraser Island and "Lovellae" although the later is somewhat dodgy as it was from a single collection of the plant with a differently formed gynoecium than is typical. The plants in your photo are beautiful examples, and very well grown.
