Hi, I hav this plant that has sprout in a pot of a plant I bought from a nursery and was shipped to me, I have never seen such red color in a plant that shape so I know it is not a D. spatulata of the type I have, and even more with the snap tentacles this one has it is giving me trouble to identify it. Do you guys know which species could it be?
Since so many rosetted sundews look alike, you should ask the nursery what was growing nearby the other plant you purchased. That would give you a better idea of what it could be. Also, I wouldn't totally rule out D. spatulata. When grown in adequate lighting, many forms get very red.
Looks a lot like a mystery plant that I have: short, stocky leaves, general spatulata shape but noticeable snap tentacles, and diminutive size. I've reverted to calling it D. spatulata "squat" until a better name shows up for it, as that's the closest species to it I can think of.
Yes I did, they say that it may be a D. spatulata or a burmanii, I think it is not a burmanii as I have that other plant and the leaves are really not the same, even the size, this is half the size of burmanii. The only maybe link it has would be if the plant was a D. spatulata v. bakoensis, but varieties that specific are not easy to tell for sure.
They double the size of this other drosera, have different shape and trichomes, different flower color, scape size and shape, also seeds are different totally.
Provide some scale like a ruler. Photos of the flowers and seeds would help and details like the stipules. There are many forms of D. burmanii. A single Beerwah plant will fill a 2.5 inch pot where as I can fit 4 or 5 of the no location/form ones I used to grow in the same size pot with room to spare. There are white and pink flower D. burmanii.
It appears to be a spatulata (or perhaps a real D. dielsiana?) that is trying to fool us into thinking it is a D. burmannii!
It would be so nice to start a new political party. Maybe name it, The Tea Party II for Americans, not racist anti-American douches that hate their neighbors? We need to reform our politics, not make them more partisan and dumber.
