    Odd Sundew in Mini-bog Bucket

    I found this sundew in one of my mini-bog buckets. I just don't recognize it and have no idea how or why it would be there. Any ideas?

    Oh that's cute! Ummm, maybe wait until it's a little older in order to I.D. it.

    Right now, it resembles D. schizandra with red glands. The chances of that are next to nill though. Schiz dislikes strong light and is very difficult to grow. Could be something in that family though: like a young D. adelae.
    Like Pet says, grow it out a little and it should become easier to identify.

    Hey Jim, you certainly have a knack for getting random dews.
    I believe it is a D. aliciae that is popping up in that first pic, but the second pic you posted is D. capensis 'Albino' or typical. I can't tell yet.

    Here's another random sundew, this time with the Justina Davis VFT:



    I think it's a D. intermedia.
