    Sundew Infestation!

    I had several plants in one particular tray (mostly sundews from Crystal) outside, this summer and now many of them have baby sundews of unknown ID. But here's the thing...it's not just those from that tray. At least one indoor pot has this infestation - admirabilis and jacobyi.









    I don't know what's in there.

    Lol! Sorry Jim! 'Jacoby' gets into everything. The majority are probably that. I've had D. dielsiana and D. capillaris in bloom almost constantly as well.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Nothing wrong with a little infestation! I've never even bought a sundew, yet I now have them all over the place. I recognize filiformis and intermedia, but the rest, i don't know. rotundifolia probably, i don't know what the other temperate rosetted ones are.

    LOL! Yeah, they did that last year as well. They could be capillaris or Ivan's Paddle or capensis or.....

    I'm putting my bet on them being D. capillaris, but it's really too early to tell.

    BTW, to be totally clear, this topic is intended to be fun and humorously ironic, and in no way a complaint. I can attempt to germinate sundews, with great care and technique and get nothing or close to nothing. And yet, with no intentions at all, I get sundews popping up in unexpected places. *your light is on*
