Drosera ID please

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, could you please help me to identify this Drosera? I don't believe it's Drosera spatulata, x Tokaiensis, aliciae, natalensis or dielsiana because of the white flower, moreover, I don't think it's Drosera venusta because of the way the leaves develop. Pictures...

Now that I searched un Google, muy Drosera is really alike to Drosera cuneifolia, but I think it isn't, my plant is doing great and has flowered un summer, but Drosera cuneifolia is a South African winter growing Drosera according to a descripción I just found and the colour of the flowers of Drosera cuneifolia is punk:

"In early winter, D. cuneifolia produces multiple (up to 20), small, pink to reddish-purple flowers at the end of scapes which can be up to 15 cm (5.9 in) tall. Flowers individually open in the morning and close by mid afternoon, lasting just one day. The flowers can self-pollinate upon closing. The seeds are very small, black, spindle-shaped, and are released from the capsules that form when the flower has died"

Looks like a pale flowered D. natalensis to me.

My cuneifolia flowered in spring, and has fairly large 30mm ish pink flowers, similar to d.slackii flowers but stigma aren't split flowerstalkvft12102012559_zpsa6693bb6.jpflowerstalkvft12102012603_zps25ea80e3.jp and a bunch of d.slackii flowers to compare flowerstalkvft12102012556_zps8d58a440.jp

More suggestions?

It's not: dielsiana, burmanii, spatulata, aliciae, cuneifolia, slackii, venusta or x Tokaiensis.

It could maybe be: white flower form of Drosera natalensis (VERY RARE because the two plants that I have with no ID are white flowered), Drosera south africa (because I don't know the colour of its flowers) or something else...

Any rapid leaf movement?  

Looks almost like D. burmannii to me.

Just in case:  collect seeds...

 

Otherwise, how about D. brevifolia?

 

Cheers,
Marcus

Hello Angelo

Are the flowers pure white or something like purple?
