    I took a couple of photos this morning with a used camera I picked up on Ebay. It does a pretty good job. This plant was not labled, a few forum members ID'd it as D. nidiformis. I'm still not sure, it just doesnt seem like the petioles are long enough to be D. nidiformis.

    It dosen't look all that much like D. nidiformis to me. Plus in good light most "nidi's" take on more of a maroon colour. Also judging from the flower scape there's only one growth point there. Kinda bushy if thats the case.

    But, yes, very nice dew [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    I don't want to claim expertise nor argue with the members of this forum who identified your plant as Drosera nidiformis, but there is a great deal about your plant which reminds me of my Drosera spatulata (form from Fraser Island). The way the newest leaves are held semi-erect and their shape, for instance. However, the tentacles on my D. spatulata are very bright red, but that could be due to differences in growing conditions.

    Your plant looks like it is flowering right now. Perhaps you could post a photo of the entire bloom scape with flowers? That may help with identification.

    Just my two cents,

    That's just an old scape. It flowered about a month ago. The flowers were light pink.

    Light pink you say? I think we're one step closer to D. spatulata.

    From what I see it is probably D. spatulata.
