    Unknown Utricularia/Droseras

    Hi everyone, first post here. I've had two Sarracenia for a couple months now, and I've noticed the other interesting carnivorous plants growing as weeds in their containers. One of them already had some bladderworts growing in the substrate when I got them, but I'm having trouble finding which species it is. The flowers are predominantly white with yellow and purple coloration. The leaves are maybe 5 mm long, 1 mm wide, and grow opposite one another, flat against the substrate.

    I also noticed some seedling sundews popping up... Three of them are D. binata, I believe, because they seem to have a couple long, forked leaves. But there is another one that looks different from the rest - it has many smaller leaves that are more disc-shaped at the end. Any chance of being able to tell which species this might be?

    All these plants are kept outdoors and should be going dormant soon, because nighttime temperatures have been dipping into the upper 20s at night for the past week or so. The pitchers on the Sarracenia are just now starting to die back. Thanks in advance for any help!

    +1. The third one's probably a young binata too.

    Incredibly, I also came up with U. bisquamata D. binata as well. For comparison sake:

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Like this one?



    Dunno. spur on that one was much longer than i would have expected from bisqumata. But it is one that grows readily from seeds and popped up for me as a volunteer

    One way of telling Utricularia arnaria is from it's fertile seed pods...I don't recall my U. bisquamata forming these without assist. It may be the smaller form of U. bisquamata, but I have also seen U. arnaria with similar coloration.
