    Volunteer bladderworts?

    Can anyone tell me what species that is poking up in this capensis' pot? Not sure what I should do with them, if anything...

    Thanks. ;D

    That is moss' flower pods. Also, it looks like your capensis is in flower, the green thing with the ball attached on the left. Grats! First flower

    Are there visible flowers, if you actually see blooms, then its not a moss spore pod.

    They look like Utricularia flower scapes to me, not moss sporophytes. The only way to tell is to let them blossom.

    Most likely they are either U. bisquamata or U. subulata which are very common (and invasive) species in CP collections.

    How to get rid of them? A flame thrower might do the trick - maybe. Both of these species are more prolific than Drosera capensis and just as durable.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Ok, thanks.

    I got it at UNCC today, asked Dr. Mellichamp what they were and he said "Ah.. bladderworts. You might like them, might not..."

    I didn't press him farther; he was very busy with the plant sale.

    By the way, NaN, I got some more shots of their Sarracenia hybrids (all of them, I think). I'll post them soon.

    Edit: And I'm still not sure if I want to purge them or what. I guess I could bare-root the capensis, move it, and leave them in that pot. It's only a 3.5 inch pot anyway...
