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).

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.

It was seeing an intermedia leaf for the first time that got me hooked.
