I can't make out much of any details, but unless you got the seed directly from a population of D. dielsiana in South Africa, then you most certainly do not have D. dielsiana, but rather a form of D. natalensis or a hybrid with D. natalensis.

and these were supposed to be D. dielsiana, from a different plant:
..why do I get the feeling that all I have had has been D. natalensis....

The flower stems are very glandular and hairy on D. v., less so on D. n.. The styles divide fewer times in D. n.--similar to the difference between D. binata and D. multifida leaves. The lamina of D. v. is a bit wider than in D. n.. D. v. flower stems can grow nearly twice the height of D. n flower stems...

LOL! To me, they all look alike! I can only go by what others have sent me.

Maybe you need a couple different species, eh? Don't trade for or buy D. dielsiana though, you will get another D. natalensis. I've got a bunch of seed just waiting for someone to take them off my hands...
Over the years, I've heard many times D. capensis and Utricularia subulata described as weeds which jump into neighboring pots. Don't get me wrong, D. capensis has jumped a couple of times in twenty years, but it's not that consistent. But, the species which constantly hop pots are D. natalensis, D. spatulata and U. rostrata.

That plant is likely from the seeds i was spreading around that i received from triffid nurseries as "D. dielsiana ssp. "Transvaal"." Apparently some growers have re-labeled as D. snyderi and others think might be a mis-labeled hybrid of Nidiformis or something... but anyway, i might recommend calling it D. snyderi or "D. nidiformis hybrid" for now, since it was suggested for me to do so a while back.
for some reason, the images can't be posted, but here are the links:

However, I'm thinking the hybrid actually is D. natalensis * D. nidiformis.
D. nidiformis used to be known as "sp. Transvaal".
This photo appears to depict D. x synderi.

none of the plants here seems to be D. dielsiana to me. As long as you did not get seeds or plants from highly reliable sources (i can only think of two or three persons) the chance you have D. dielsiana are almost down to 0. I still have to see the first plants of that species in cultivation.
