    MY drosophyllum [Edit: spelling: Drosophyllum is a genus name and must always be written with an initial capital letter.] is like 3 weeks old and its over an inch tall but theres like a bud on the top of it i dont know if thats were the leaves come from or what not heres a picture. I also have some pictures of my auriculata tubers sprouting and if i can get them to come out my drosera gigantea seedling( that is they are so small they might not be seen)

    Drosophyllum

    Hi,

    Your Drosophyllum looks like it needs more light. It will grow shorter stems and longer leaves in good light. The glands on the leaves will be red if there is sufficient light. Nice auriculata [Edit: spelling: Drosera auriculata] plants.

    I agree about your plant needing more light.
    I have never seen one with a long stem like that. The new leaves stay very close to the soil from my experience.

    Here's a picture of the one I germinated last year, a few weeks after sprouting.

    They do can certainly survive whilst quickly producing stems; mine do. I think that, as long as the glands are reddish, you'll be OK. If not, your plants will eventually wither.

    I germinated it in a south facing windowsill.
    It spends it's winters there. The other time I grow it outside in direct sunlight all day.
