    This morning I found these wee two-pronged fellows in my D. burmanii pot. No idea what they could be. The burmaniis are in a closed tank together with some D. paradoxa (in bloom), a very small d. petiolaris and a D. dielsiana (as well as a Myrmecodia echinata and a N. bical 'Red Flush', but I think we can rule these out as the culprits.)

    Any ideas as to what they might be?

    Thanks very much in advance!

    looks like a D. binata to me or it could be(highly unlikely though) a baby D. peltata.

    I would bet Twoton's bottom dollar that they are D. binata!

    The odd thing is, is that one year ago, in a Nep hanging basket of mine, I found the exact same thing seedling. I had no idea how it got there, since I didn't have any binata seeds. Maybe it came from someone else's collection or maybe it came from the soil media I bought. I just don't know. All I know is that the initial leaves look like s tuberous sundew and the next leaves had that halfmoon look to it. As it developed, it was apparent that it was a binata. Great species to have, very versatile and tough.

    I spose if ya used New Zealand LFS or peat that was from New Zealand/Australia, some D. binatas could have been growing in the peat that was removed from there, and their seeds might have been in the peat.
