Try "col*o*mbiana". Probably the plant (or seed) is not from Colombia
but from Brazil, collected by Fernando Rivadavia (hi, Fernando!). The
plants from Brazil have been described as _D. pumila_ but are
probably conspecific with the Colombian taxon.

What are you looking for, specifically?
> What sort of Droseras are they

_D. colombiana_ belongs to subgenus Drosera (styles 3
 basally bifurcate, seeds ovoid). Its leaves are in a basal rosette.
The scapes and sepals are glandless hairy.

_D. fulva_ belongs to subgen. Lasiocephala (styles 3 repeatedly
divided above base, seeds ovoid). The leaves are in a basal rosette.
They have distinct petioles. The whole plant is eglandular pilose and
distinguished only in minor (and apparently quite variable)
characteristics from _D. petiolaris s. str._, with which it has been
united in the past.

Seeds should work for both.

Kind regards
