    Based on looks and your description, I would go with a devil's claw seedling too (even though it's a little small).
    It could be a Drosera too.... Or it could be something else.

    Keep us posted.

    It's really blurry, can you get a better shot?

    That leaf on at the top looks like a baby D. binata. I get lots of them. Keep watching the leaves, they mature quickly.

    ~Edit~

    Wait, are you talking about the seedling with the long leaves, or the little round-leafed flat one? THAT one looks like a seedling mimulus, a native plant also called monkey flower. Did you ever get a pot of something from me? Raffle table, perhaps? I have an "infestation" of it here. If it continues to grow quickly, and forms a thick, juicy stem, watch it bloom! Then watch it take over everything. It's easy to pull, though.

    The leaves are very slimy, but are not (yet!) believed to be carnivorous. I have several forms I've found when out driving.

    I don't think that that's any of the Queensland sisters. The way the leaves emerge in pairs... never seen that on a schizzy, prolifera, or adelae. It looks a bit like the Proboscidea I started a little too early this year.

    yeah, definitely not a devils claw seedling. the pot's only 3 inches wide!

    yes Katie, i got it from you! it came in with the pinguicula cyclosecta pot from way back in october. i guess the seedling plant didnt pop open until now. hahahaha. i should have asked YOU first!

    Mimulus (i suppose) it is!

    Thanks everyone for participating!

    Aha!!!

    It's Mimulus guttatus.

    Move it to it's own pot, and keep it dead-headed, unless you want the seeds to spread. The flowers are REALLY cute. The bigger the pot, the bigger it'll get. I have one growing with a Nepenthes, many more in the bog and other random pots.

    That's the "short" plant I got from someone else in the club. I also found a two to three foot robust form near Pescadero, and a medium scrawny form in the Delta that the leaves turn purple when it gets hot. I've become infatuated with this stuff.

    Hey that's a very cute little plant, sort of like a yellow snapdragon / bladderwort flower!

    The other plant really looks like a young D. binata.
