From California Carnivores. Packaged beautifully and arrived in good health and on time. Very pleased with this company and enjoy their youtube vids as well.

Its a Drosera capensis 'narrow leaf'.

This is only my second carnivorous plant (besides seeds). My other is a typical Walmart flytrap.

Nice! Be sure to give it lots of light. When I got my first Cape I was frantic because of the lack of dewy leaves. I tried everything except, of course, more light. Once I got it acclimated to the warm AZ sun, it thrived.

That is a nice plant! Good for you! :) I'm curious as to where you're located (general area). It looks like it made the trip just fine and like Gary said, once it gets settled in to its new environment and plenty of light it'll start buggering up quick! :lol: I see you have it sitting on a heating mat. I'm not sure that is necessary. Capes supposedly like sunny but mild conditions.

Btw, do I already see a few dew drops on the plant? It really is a nice plant! :D
