    Mystery Drosera

    Hi Everyone,

    I bought a few seeds from the seed-bank and what was labeled as Pinguicula turned out to be a Drosera.
    I have never seen this species before, so I am a bit in the dark as to which it is and how to grow it.

    I have got a sneaky suspicion that it might require cool temperatures or at least a good temperature drop during the night. But hopefully someone can shine some light on this.
    It is still relatively small.

    Thanks

    It looks like it could be Drosera spiralis to me. It will need a lot of light and cool temperatures.

    Oh wow. Thanks Tanukimo.
    I will have to make a plan with cooling as it spring here already and temperatures are heating up fast.

    I'd 2nd spiralis. Pain in the butt plant for me, since I don't have cool nights during summer here...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    That must be quite a surprise to be expecting pings and get a South American Drosera instead. D. spiralis is one of the easier species from that region, but avoid root disturbance.
