    now i have no idea what the heck this is...



    i initially thought this plant was just a weed...until i saw something shiny.
    i poked it and as it turns out, this thing has GLANDS! it doesn't look like any type of sundew to me, what is it?

    btw im not talking about the forked sundew...hahaha.

    I get a weed that looks like that sometimes. The glands on mine are just hairs that catch condensation.

    that's what i thought, but it's not regular glands, it produces mucilage too! as you draw the pencil away from the plant, you can actually see it. not unlike a sundew. i know there are other plants that are non carnivorous that produce stickiness also like potatoes and tomatoes etc...could be one of those.

    young binata or multifida.
    Or are you talking about that thing with ovate leaves above it? If so that would be schizandra or some weird tuberous dew.

    i would say a young adelae, but only if that soil has come in contact with adelae in the past....if it were soil from an older lowes death cube, i wouldnt put it past it at all....i had some D. adelae "die" for a year then come back suddenly out of nowhere and make me do a triple take on it....

    after looking at some queensland sisters, im beginning to think that it might not be a sundew at all. with most sundew seedlings, the tentacles are quite defined and large. the tentacles here, if they are tentacles, are really small. as you can see, you can barely see them.

    sigh...i guess only time will tell.
