I've got three capensis alba from three different sources. They are growing aide by side in the same media. Two of them have a definite pink blush on the tentacles while the third is completely white. I'll have to see if that third one has a white flower next year.

Probably seedgrowns from selfed 'Alba' plants.

I'm 95% sure that your drosera is a D. Capensis Alba. It doesn't seem to have any red pigmentation and it's the size of a normal Capensis.

Those are three different ones. I read that alba has a pinkish blush to the tenticles so I was surprised that I have one with no color at all.
