    I was given a D. anglica from a friend, which is the plant to the right of the intermedia. So my first thought was to say that the plant in question is an anglica, because it resembles the paddle shaped leaves of mine. Since I do not have a nidiformis to compare it to and don't have a keen eye for all the detailed differences, I don't know which is which. what IS the difference between anglica and nidiformis?

    see, yours has longer "paddles" than intermedia, and shorter "paddles" than anglica. maybe its a hybrid.

    If you look closely at the petioles of D. nidiformis, you will note the small hairs present there. These are absent in D. anglica.

    Man, I would never have noticed that! Hey, at least I didn't say it looked like a spatulata. I'm making progress!

    Me either, Jim! Now that Tamlin mentions it, I can see that it is indeed D. nidiformis. It's fun to get new plants who are stowaways in other plants. Tamlin gave me some U. paulinae recently, and it also has a drosera interloper in it. I think it's D. rotundifolia, but it's really small still. I'll get a pic up when it's bigger. Any ideas, Tamlin? What lived next to your U. paulinae? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
