i got a 4pack of droseras! i got a d. adelae, d.binata, d.spat (pink), and d.spat (fi). When i ordered there was supposed to be a 1 D. Rotundifolia, but i got 2 spats, i didnt know that there were two kinds?? also they are all tropical except for the adelae right?

There are many kinds or locations of D.spatulata, don't know what does (fi) mean... filiformis maybe?

i put them all in the same pot. i might have to take the adelae out to have a pot of its own. the root system on it is huge!

The Adelae like a more shaded spot then the others. Bright, indirect Sun. You may want to transplant that one into it's own container. Adelae will grow bigger (longer leaves) in a deep pot, smaller in a shallow pot but will produce lots of baby plants.

Like this (2 inch deep tray)
