    LFS / Sedge Grass / D. intermedia

    A couple years ago a hobbyist sent me live LFS and within the clump were what I believe to have been D. intermedia. Hold that thought.

    I buy the dried LFS is bags and there is always what has been described as sedge grass that germinates, long before any sundew seeds I have sown. But I never see any stray sundews pop up from among the LFS. Has anyone gotten stray sundews from the dried material?

    Once, I got what I think was D. rotundifolia to pop up in dried LFS, but it was quickly overtaken by the sphagnum which started growing again at the same time.

    Usually, I just get sedge grass, clovers, or (if it's shady enough) ferns.

    And they're so easy to germinate... unlike sundews!

    No drosera im my LFSM, but I can identify at least 6 differnt types of weeds. the latest being what I call a walking reed(reeds are round: sedges have edges)Every place it puts down on the soil a new plant appears.
    I guess most people don't allow the grass/weeds to grow big enough to know what they look like when larger

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
