Hello everyone, I got this pygmy sundew along with a burmannii. Unfortunately, the seller didn't know what type of pygmy sundew it was. Can anyone tell?
I've had it for a month and now it's growing a flower stalk. I know the chances of getting seed is low with pygmys but I was also curious on how the flower would look like. On the other hand, I don't want the plant to suffer from using all it's energy on the flower. What do you guys think? Cut it off or let it flower and see what happens?
(PS sorry for the bad picture, the plant and the flower stalk was soo small that my phone camera couldn't register it properly)

Getting a picture of the petiole might help an ID too. Some are wider than others. The flower may help you too once it opens. As for the flower its up to you. I doubt it would kill it but if you want to take zero chances, you can wait til you drop the photoperiod and it starts forming gemmae.

Not sure if these pictures are any better...

I went looking through this list and honestly I'm not too sure. When it flowers you should have a good idea.
Hopefully this'll help: https://www.carnivorousplants.org/cp/ta ... gmyDrosera

Perhaps you'll have a better chance of identifying it since it's there next to you.

Very nice plant!

Out of all the Pygmy Drosera I grow, I’m going to say that looks the most like Dx legrandii (nitidula x occidentalis), although that hybrid isn’t very common. Looks a little like the more common x carbarup, too. Flower pic and gemmae shape really help when IDing pygmy dews.
