Now, not to toot my own horn, but I may be the only person in the US with this location data...
Drosera capillaris (Bertioga, Brazil).
Now to hopefully get seeds to spread the love.
These are beautiful!!

I don't even remember doing it, but I got you taken care of.
Good luck.

I'm pretty sure I've posted to this thread a couple of time but my posts are disappearing.

Here is a pot with some of the 25 baby flytraps I got from The Flytrap Store back in February. I love the differences in size, color, and shape.

That spiralis looks absolutely amazing! I’m a little tempted to make a setup specifically for that species :lol:

Look for another post later with more photos, but this is one of my favorites from this last weekend.

Date: 9/5/2021 @ 2:44 pm EST.
Location: Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Pat Grogan Shelldrake Nature Sanctuary.
LAT: 46° 45' 25.542" N
LON: 85° 8' 29.13" W

Saw thousands, based on all the flower stalks, etc. Had to almost walk on some to stay on the provided trail.
