I'm a sucker for drosera with a "sp." in the name. Curiosity about the unknown, I guess. Although that doesn't mean that I don't want a better ID on them. This is "Drosera sp.Botswana". Google brings up a lot of "sp.Botswana" but they are all considering it as co-specific with D. madagascariensis. This plant obviously isn't that. I've been told that's it another natalensis. Since it's currently producing seeds destined for the seed bank, I figured I'd see if anybody had another opinion. Anybody? What say you?

From my understanding, Peter D'amato was given some leaf cuttings collected from a ditch in botswana. He sold them as Drosera sp. 'Botswana'. Until he funally identified them as madagascariensis. Yours looks more like a rosetted dew.

Agreed. It's definitely rosetted, there's no sign of upward growth. The leaves are way off, too.
