    Unknown sundews found

    I have found these sundews in the pot of a recent sarracenia purchase and would be grateful for any guesses as to what they are. Im thinking that the ones to the outside are tubers? They appear to be the same species.

    One of them looks like D. capensis to me, the one to the left, and the one to the right maybe D. rotundifolia? I'm not 100% sure on either of those since there so small.

    The sundew in the first picture and to the right on the other two pictures looks like D. rotundifolia to me. Can't say I'm too sure about the other...

    I wouldn't be surprised if that plant with the more rounded leaves ends up being a form of D. binata. The leaves look a bit oblong to me which is what D. binata looks like before forming mature forked leaves. I would expect D. rotundifolia leaves to be more round.

    The other is most likely D. capensis, the weed that it is.

    Agreed with nimbulan. The plants are still too small to say anything definitively, but from what I've seen of seedlings I'd say capensis and binata.
    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.

    I am going to guess D. rotundifolia in the first two pics although binata does start off looking a lot like rotundifolia, and the last pic either D. intermedia or capensis. Please post pics when they are bigger
