    unknown drosera sprouting everywhere...

    does anyone have any ideas what these might be? the only drosera that had a flower was the capensis i got from Andrew(i snipped the flower the first day i got it), even then, how could it have spread to almost all of the pots which are all spread out? there is about 15 of them i have found so far and finding more everyday.
    thanks, ~b

    They are Capensis.
    They don't look anything like the mature plant when they first come up, I had the same trouble. The more mature capensis characteristic leaves will come up after it puts out a few more of those seedling leaves.

    They're not D. capensis. They are a species/hybrid pygmy Drosera species.

    It indeed does look like a pygmy, but we might want to give it some more time to confirm it.

    I bet all of you $100 it's a capensis. My hitchhiker seedling capensis looked the exact same way when it first sprouted.
    Just because it's small doesn't mean it's a pygmy.
