    I third the schizandra comment. Although they are very difficult to grow. If it continues to grow and looks more schiz-like, give it subdued light. Schizandras despise strong light. Wow. Best hitchiker evah!

    perhaps. i was thinking of that too. how large is a devil's claw seed? i've never had one, and judging from the size of the seed capsules they must be on the large side.

    very well could be a devils claw......though i think youd know if you planted one of those i tried em last season..but, a better pic would help greatly...also looks like one of my many petunia seedlings right now, which also have sticky mucous on the leaves...

    The leaf bases don't look like D. schizandra's...

    So I don't think it's that.

    hahaha. in my defense, i didn't plant anything in this pot. it was given to me by another forum member. this plant didn't make it's way into my view until maybe a week ago.

    I would say it could be the start of a Drosera adelae infestation though I can't really see the glandular hairs on yours (they must be very fine) and yours have a definite petiole impression down the center of the leaf. Can you get a clearer shot of the plant? It may not be a "true" CP at all. Many plants have sticky hairs and now Kew Botanical Gardens seems to think sticky hairs on any plant means they're a CP these days (according to a new report).

    Just for your comparison here's a shot of my D. adelae from Lowes which has died off and is coming back from old leaves and the root system you can see small plants somewhat similar to yours popping up here and there:



    I did not own a D. adelae in the past but I had one pop up in my N. hamata's pot back then. I must have used some moss from someone else who had one and it had a seed in it (unless NZ LFS can spontaneously grow D. adelae...?) well the little bugger took over the whole 10" net pot the hamta was in, growing out every hole in the sides and the bottom of the pot. Even orchid fertilizer that I used on the Nep didn't bother it much! You'd think you could kill it that way...

    It flowered nicely (red blooms) but eventually choked out the N. hamata and I ended up I reducing the hamata vines down to cuttings. If it is a D. adelae I would move it if you don't want it overtaking the pot it's in. I'm not planting mine in the vivarium cos soon all I'd have is D. adelae. It's like the dandelion of CPs!

    no worries about D. adelae. i've dealt with that nightmare before! hahaha. i promise to be brutal to both U. longfolia and D. adelae (if it is)--prune heavy, save no survivors--unless if someone wants them. hahaha.
