Unknown short capensis

Plant
There are a few "compact" leaved capensis forms out there, which may have originated from aliciae x capensis crosses. The cultivar D. x Hercules is an example of one such hybrid.

Another possibility is the "Broad leaf" D. capensis form from Bainskloof. My plants have hairy lamina as shown in your pic and develops a stem as it matures.

Your plant appears to be still small. I would wait until it flowers to have more confidence with an ID.

Here's a form I grow that was labeled "Compact, Wide leaf" for comparison

Thanks cpgeek.
I think I'll just label it compact wide leaf as well.
No sense giving it a named label if I'm not 100% sure.
