Hi, dear friends.

Could you please help me with an exact identification for these three D. capensis?

The whiter one I think it’s obviously D. capensis “alba”, but I wait for the help of more experienced friends.

Thanks,

Definitely "Albino" on the right, 99.9% sure typical on the left, but that middle one has some insanely long paddles! I don't know on that one, I'm not even going to hazard a guess, but I'll do some research and see what I can find.

The middle one COULD(not sure)be a 'Wide Leaf', but who knows, it might be a really unique seedgrown :?

Wide leaf? Idk. That's crazy long, not wide. But could possibly be a mutation of "Wide Leaf", who knows?

Maybe. But still looks a lot longer than any Cape I've ever seen.
And the flowers are coming. Hope they produce lots of seeds.

I have seen long-petiole and leaf forms of capensis in the wild. Truth be told, capensis is so variable and plastic that you may struggle to get exact names or locations if the originals were lost. Hence lots of alba, narrow, wide, so on forms in cultivation :)
