    Is there something (else) alive in here?

    Lopsided growth may or may not be cause for concern, however in this case:

    Drosera macrophylla
    ssp macrophylla "Wongan Hills, WA"



    Is it another tuber bursting forth or a graboid? Dare I try a little exploratory surgery?

    Interesting. Sometimes stuff like that happens in my houseplant pots - usually turns out to be mushrooms. This mystery must be solved... For science!

    This time of year the tuberous Drosera will be digging down into the pot to form a tuber. If the underground stem hits something or has a difficult time burrowing it will sometimes bend and push the top part out of the pot. I am guessing this is what is going on.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
