Unknown Petiolaris Complex

  • Thread starter tusan2000

Hi, I recently bought some petiolaris complex sundew seeds from Urantia Carnivores (who I believe recently closed up shop) which I have germinated and grown. Unfortunately, I believe the seeds I received were mislabeled and am now trying to identify what species I actually got. The seeds in question were labeled as being from Drosera falconeri "Wangi". As you can see from the included picture (ignore additional plants in background), I am pretty sure the seeds were not from Drosera falconeri "Wangi". Does anyone have any ideas what species of plant this is? My suspicion is that it is a Drosera ordensis as my plant looks very similar to pictures of e.g. Drosera ordensis "Cave Springs" that Urantia Carnivores had on their website though I am not experienced enough to be completely sure. Can anyone more knowledgeable confirm what species of plant this is?

Without seeing details of flowers...rather impossible to say for certain what species, or more likely hybrid, this will be, and may not be possible then either. A LOT of the Petiolaris group, especially with all the undescribed taxa still present, are very similar to each other and they can all hybridize.

Yeah, was afraid I was going to hear that. Oh well, at least I'm pretty sure its a petiolaris complex. Can't complain especially with how well its growing and looking.
 
I have to agree. Maybe you can get ahold of Bobby at Urantia and see what he has to say. He may have seen something similar among his plants whether pure species or hybrid.
