    Whats going on in my bog?

    I've noticed these odd, twig-like growths coming out of both my D. filiformis and D. rotundifolia. Any ideas what is going on?

    Hopefully you can see what I'm talking about from the pics but let me know if I need to point them out...the ones from the filiformis are sticking both straight up like the other leaves (dead leaves?) as in the first pic but there are also some skinnier ones along the top of the media if you can't see them in the third pic. They look more like tendrils of something. In the second pic you can see a thicker one just coming right out almost like a flower stalk gone wrong, although I never saw anything close to buds being produced. I also can't tell if the rotundifolia is already wanting to going dormant because I'm not exactly sure what their hibernacula are supposed to look like. It wouldn't surprise me since I moved and the temp is on average 10-15 degrees cooler here than before but neither rotundifolia plants have grown much this summer. It seems like every new leaf just died back again which is odd since everything else grew like gangbusters since I got them about a month back.

    Sorry, the pics are backwards. Switch the first and third to match my descriptions.

    im guessing you're kinda new to CP's?

    those tendril like growths you see coming out of your sundews are what's left of the flower stalks during the spring season.

    your rotundi does look like it's making a hiberculum--kinda early in my opinion, but i've recently heard around the forums that everyone's plants are beginning to do it.

    Problem is that I got these in mid-July and they were not on the plants when I repotted. I thought maybe recent flower stalks but I found it odd since I never saw anything indicating that they were going to produce anything other than just the stalks. No buds, nothing. Huh.

    And yes, this is my first "year" with CPs.

    yeah, because they were already done flowering, and the person who had them prior snipped them off.

    nobody said the flowers were naturally aborted by the plant.
    the grower could have let them flower, then snipped the stalks to collect seed.
