A few months ago I planted some drosera. One pot was Tokaiensis and the other was Spatulata- well I forgot to label. One pot has grown much faster than the other and is already flowering.

In December I bought 2 pots of Sarrs from a greenhouse that weren't labeled. I figured I would wait until they colored up before trying to figure out what they were.

Thank you so much for helping this novice out!

The low angular Sarracenia looks like S. X Wrigleyana.
This is a generic hybrid name between S. leucophylla and S. psittacina.
'Scarlet Belle' is a commonly distributed cultivar from this cross.
But without a label or provenance, call it S. X Wrigleyana.

The flowering Drosera looks like D. tokaiensis.
My spatulatas do not have the distinct change from petiole to lamina that your plant shows.

But this is just my 02¢ worth.
I am not a reliable expert, especially where D. tokaiensis is involved.

Turns out I'm more of a novice than I realized.... They are 2 different sarrs in one pot :x

So the one with the more rounded top is the S. X Wrigleyana?

And after a ton of googling the one with the more open top could possibly be S. ×moorei?
