    I believe I got a two-fer

    I've watched as my s. leucophylla 'red ruffles' put on more pitchers, and wondered what else I was seeing.

    I believe I got a bonus when I bought this plant.

    A sundew. This looks like my temperate drosera intermedia growing practically on top of the sarr.



    Do I have to separate them? Am I gonna kill one or both if I do?

    It shouldn't bother the Sarracenia. The Sarr will grow taller than the dew, and they usually get along just fine.

    You actually got a three-fer. See those little round balls on stalks? Those are Utricularia seeds. I suspect either U. subulata, which is cleistogamous and makes seeds without blooming, or U. bisquemata which bloomed and you didn't see the flowers. Congrats!

    Pull the grass-like things to the left of the Sarr and slightly above NOW, it's a sedge, and will take over everything.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    Gotcha. Will get the sedge out.

    Doesn't the d. capensis have to come inside in the winter? The mini bog is staying outside.

    Depends on where you live and how big the bog is. I have D. capensis in my Sarracenia that did fine through the winter, and I believe DJ has capensis surviving in her big bogs in Oregon. That Sarr is not a leucophylla by the way, maybe leucophylla x purpurea "Red Ruffles"?

    Let us know where you live, (just a city and state is fine)
    and we can tell you if you need to separate them or not..

    Not necessarily. According to what I've read, Drosera capensis is capable of entering dormancy, although it is not necessary and most people don't do it. I personally suspect that they want to see their plant all year round.
