    Gemmae or New Leaves?

    Here are a couple pics of my D. nitidula x ericksoniae I just snapped a little bit ago. Being as I have never seen gemmae before, I can't really tell if these are they or just a bunch of new leaves that will open in the near future. This clump in the middle is a fairly new development, but they look like the might just be regular leaves. This plant has so many of them though... I just don't know what to look for. I really hope they are gemmae though.

    If they're flowering then they shouldn't be producing gemmae. Flowers in the spring, gemmae in the fall.

    actually looks like the little dormancy pods they make, i dont know much about Drosera seeing as i just started growing them.
    what is the temperature and light condition you have it in?
    NaN is right about the Gemmae/Flowers though.

    its about 70-73 consistently in the room. Humidity between 50% and 70%, bright window + 2 75 watt equiv CFLs. They have been pretty much continuously producing flowers, but I'd really like them to produce gemmae sometime, but I don't feel like reducing the photoperiod. It's much more convenient to just leave them under the lights with all my nepenthes and other drosera.

    Gemmae look like horrible tumors! That's how you tell the difference.

    Should they produce gemmae eventually if I just reduce the photoperiod by a few hours, or do I need to modify the temperature as well?
