    That is actually D. dilatato-petiolaris. Triffid Park are selling the plants with an incoorect ID.

    I am growing all three and they seem to be fine. Don't know why the pics don't show up, I want to see how Sean can recognize it is from Triffid. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I love those forked-leaf sundews! Keep up the good growing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    On a side note, it's a shame you can't get D. capensis to grow for you. It's one of my favorite sundews!

    Because Triffid Park are the culprits who have misnamed the plants and sent them all over the world to cause confusion (not purposefully, just ignorantly). The plant in the shot is definitely D. dilatato-petiolaris and Triffid Park have been calling this plant D. petiolaris "red" for a long time now. I've tried telling them but they don't care. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img].

    Every time I see the name D. petiolaris "red" on a growlist, I automatically assume it is incorrectly IDed. 99% of the time it will be.

    Thanks, Seandew. I had the habit of naming this plant dilatato-petiolaris. I ordered both 'dilatato' and 'all red' but the other plant died.

    So, I haven't be mistaken after all! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Btw, what's the difference? Is 'all red' really all red?
