    Cool

    Late last year I noticed a small rosette Drosera growing from a patch of live sphagnum moss that I got from Cook's. Any idea what it may be?



    At another angle...


    thanks!

    Its D. peltata or its cousin (something like aurticularita, I cannot remember the spelling even though I have the plant)

    I did mean from seed. But maybe not. It could really be about anything. I did not notice how small it was before

    If it was in live sphagnum from Cooks, it could be D. rotundifolia seedling, which is often found popping up in live sphagnum. However, it could also be a stray pygmy Drosera of some kind, which easily spread as gemma. You say, "late last year". Has it grown since?

    I noticed the plant late last year growing in the sphagnum, so I transplanted it soon thereafter so it won't get overgrown. I took the picture just a few days ago. It really hasn't grown that much since I noticed it.

    thanks,

    Drosera rotundifolia

    Seedlings growing in live Sphagnum:

    When growing on peat or peat/sand they quickly assume the appearance yours shows.
