    what is this? moss or some type of bladderwort?

    I hope i can attach this picture correctly



    This is growing along with some random droseras in a pot with our All Green VFT im possitive its harmless but i see little flower stalks emerge from within this green stuff and the questions as to what it is from the kids has got me wanting to find out once and for all!

    Your guess is as good as mine really. It kinda looks leafy thin little long shaped leaves and these tiny little flower stalks about a inch tall with a little ball at the top (??) idk if ive ever seen them open they are quite small to say the least.

    Any guess would help. One of the older kids thought it may be a bladderwort of some kind and a younger kid said it looks like moss but im not quite sure lol!

    That looks like a bladderwort to me, probably U. bisquamata or U. subulata. There's also quite a few liverworts in there.
