    Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could tell me or post a pic of what capillaris [Edit: spelling: Drosera capillaris] seedling looks like?
    I found 2 tiny green plantlets last night, on the spot where I had sown 5 capillaris [Edit: spelling: Drosera capillaris] seeds one month previous. Almost wet myself with excitement, but not sure if those are capillaris [Edit: spelling: Drosera capillaris] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Please advise, thanks.

    No chance of a pic with my current camera, I could probably get a pic after X-mas.. But, I believe they are monocots meaning after the seed leaves, one leaf will form. They are so small I couldn't see the seed leaves. Mine, have a tiny stem and then one leaf that branches off, it's not long and skinny like adult plants, but instead has more of a round leaf tip, looks kinda like a intermedia [Edit: spelling: Drosera intermedia]. Lemme go browse through my pics and see if any managed to catch one good enough.

    They'r gonna look like just about every other Drosera seedling - a tiny green stem, with very tiny tentacles.

    Yes, what jimscott said. Most Drosera seedlings look pretty much alike. It isn't until they begin to mature that they take on the characteristics of their respective species or hybrid origins.

    I've noticed most tend to look like rosetted-sub tropicals (D. spatulata, for example) for a while, but then like Pinguiculaman said, they begin to look like the adults. My young D. capensis looked like a small D. spatulata until just recently, since it's leaves are now growing longer into the more familiar D. capensis leaf-shape.

    Ok, now Im totally confused because I compared those 2 little plantlets with my little sphagnim [Edit: spelling: Sphagnum, genus names are always written with an initial capital letter.] ones... and they are not the same thing... so maybe it is capillaris [Edit: spelling: Drosera capillaris] after all!!!
    hehehe
