    I have both, and I can't find any pictures of D. tokensis online so I can compare. They look exactly the same to me... and my D. tokensis flower stalk looks the same so far too.

    D x tokaiensis is the natural hybrid of D. spatulata and rotundifolia from Japan. The plants look very similat to a D. spatulata form but usually have more rounded laminas. Flowerscapes are also very similar.

    I have a D.tokaiensis and a D.spatulata. The D.spatula has red outer tentacles and the D. tokaiensis has white outer tentacles and is more bright green. Neither has flowered yet. I have pics of both, but the D.tokaiensis is kinda blurry.

    I think what Piranha said is right on the money. D. Tokensis is a bright green color while D. spatulata is a darker green and can be almost red under the right light.

    Hmmmm, dunno about the color difference being reliable. Outdoors grown they both become very well colored. The shape of the lamina is really the better criteria.

    The colour difference certainly isn't reliable. Mine are grown in strong light and the colour differences between D x tokaiensis and D. spatulata are non-existent.

    You can't find photos of D. tokensis? Spelling is important.

    I list 32 links to photos of Drosera x tokaiensis at

    I might as well ask this here- Is D x tokaiensis cold-hardy?? I was going to leave some outdoors this year and hope that the D.rotundifiolia parentage would maybe help them survive, as an experiment.. D.filiformis survives fine outside overwinter here and it is not "supposed to" so I was going to try this... is it worth a shot?? I have 100 or so plants so even if it's a chancy proposition, I will risk it, only if it's near-guaranteed to fail will I hesitate
