    Smile Identify Please, nice find from ,FLYTRAPSHOP

    After unpotting the red dragon dew I got form the store here in the spring I found this.
    do I owe adnedarn more money ?
    Is a good one?.
    .

    Should I fridge it with the VFT's , so I dont disturb it again?.
    .

    Ive already uprooted it, though the roots are all in the clump of sphag. and dont seem to be exposed,.
    should I just repot it back where it came from?.
    .

    Looks like it may be capillaris or one of the spatulata varieties.
    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.

    Possible but mine is not so red, this is spathulata bakoensis.

    It may be a cappilaris seedling.
    They do have snap tentacles.

    Heres a
    Picture of my drosera cappilaris long arm



    You can see the snap tentacles on it. Still a very small plant around half a dime size.

    This question is probably best posed to adnedarn, as It's obviously most likely something in his collection. I'd also say probably capilaris or spatulata, but I'm no expert...
    Good luck finding out!

    Your 'capilaris long arm' looks earily like D. bermanii or possibly D. brevifolia. It's like no capilaris I've ever seen... But again, not an expert on these small dews. Maybe seedlings have different proportions than older plants? I'm suspicious...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Edit: ...Yeah... Pretty positive that's not capilaris, and it certainly doesn't have long arms. Could it have been mislabeled? Might want to talk to your vendor. My vote is D. burmanii
