Sundew and Sarracenia ID

by sg_guy » Wed Dec 05, 2018 12:45 pm

I recently got a sundew, but it came without labels. Please help to identify! Thanks!

also, just like to ask if it needs more light?

That looks like Drosera spatulata to me.

It will take as much light as you can give it.
In full sun, the entire plant will be Red.
With adequate sun, you should see Red tentacles and glands.

That's my two cents worth.

Welcome to the forum.

Impossible to say with absolute certainty. A complex hybrid perhaps with some definite flava and leucophylla influence. Possibly some purp in there too.

This looks like a juvenile/yearling plant. It may be easier to identify some parentage once it's fully mature, but should still be labeled NOID.
