Good morning friends.
I would like some assistance if you would.
Last year, I sent some seeds that were labeled as D. spatulata to one of our other members, and I, in turn, had received them from yet another member. I have high confidence the seeds were correctly labeled when sent to me.
The seeds had a lot of debris from the flower stalks, so I suggested to the member I sent them to that he sow them outside to help prevent mold. He did, and this is the result.

Now, I see a boatload of spat seedlings, but there is an obvious difference in one plant. Can you guess which one? That is the one I'm asking about, I'm saying burmannii, but I'm not a Drosera expert. I also saw a much smaller one off to the right, partially covered by a spat, that may be a second. Your thoughts on the odd man out?
We're assuming a stray seed from the source I received the seeds from as I stored these in a cupboard, away from the seed bank seeds, and the member I sent them to only has Humpty Doo for burmannii.

Almost certainly a burmannii, but I'm not sure about humpty doo. From what I can tell, humpty doo leaves are slightly more elongated compared to other cultivators, and they usually express some red coloration if not fed often. I had to look it up, but it just looks like a typical burmannii to me. Could be wrong though.

Can we get a Dew enthusiast up in here?

It's a burmannii in my opinion.
But it's not a D. burmannii "Humpty Doo".
The spatulatas around it have red tentacles.
If this was Humpty Doo, the whole plant would be turning red by now.
I would just label it Drosera burmannii on the plant ID tag.

D. sessilifolia is not commonly grown, and in my experience doesn't get anywhere near this large (also wouldn't stay solid green like this.)

Will the flowers help ID the type of burmannii? Cause it’s getting there soon...

Does this flower help to know if it is a Humpty Doo ???
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Humpty Doo only has white flowers.
