    Bonus sprouts in pot!

    I have some extras growing in my Purple Pitcher pot. This is same pot from where I purchased, so I got a little extra i guess.
    I know that there is a little Sun dew coming up.
    I wanted to know are those other green leaves possibly something or just some other type of crap from the moss?



    Thnx
    Says to wife "Nah babe, I'm not trying to grow a pitcher plant big enough to put you in"

    The other green leaves just look like weeds.

    The sundew is D. capensis, can't tell what form from the pic though.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    The sundew is D. capensis 'typical' or maybe 'alba.' The other plant is a weed

    Yeah, looks exactly like my drosera capensis red seedlings, only different color (they are starting to get their color in, but not all of them, wondering if my seeds are mixed).
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Most red forms of plants need high light to keep their color, so if you are not providing your plants with enough light that could explain why they are not all red.

    That, and the genetics of the seedlings. Even if a completely red plant is self-pollinated, there will usually be a few that will have weaker color.
