My local nursery was having a 30% off sale on some plants and I decided to pick up a "death cube" VFT and Drosera. Does anyone know what species of Drosera this is? My guess would be spatulata.





Thanks!

My guess for it would be a severely etiolated D. spatulata or D. x tokaiensis.
Pictures of the flowers would probably help, if you can get some.

Thanks Bio, it's definitely looking a bit rough right now. As you mentioned, it seems quite etiolated, very green, and has little to no dew at the moment. All reasons for why I have avoided death cube plants in the past, this drosera and the VFT I got are the first CPs I've bought from a nursery not dedicated to CPs. For $5 each the price was right though.

Hopefully it recovers in its new pot soaking up the sun (what little of it there is right now.)
