    Is This New Growth or a Whole New Plant?

    I accidentally put my adelae outside in the sun and cooked it. Well, I put it outside on purpose, but because I didn't know any better.

    I have since put it in shade, and then in a window inside, and it seems to either have new growth, or a whole new plant Actually, two, since there are similar things on opposite sides of the plant.

    Let me know what you think it is. I trimmed off a lot of the cooked leaves.











    Sorry some are out of focus. I can try harder to get in-focus pictures if needed.

    Its a new root plant coming... the roots make new plants, and they form around the main plant

    Drosera adelae's main form of reproduction is by those little root runners. In time, they will take up the whole pot. If you repot it into something larger, They'll eventually take up that pot as well. That's how stuff like this happens: http://www.botanik.uni-karlsruhe.de/...BotKA%20G1.jpg

    That's freakin' awesome!

    So I should let these bad boys grow a little, then repot it into something bigger, and maybe get rid of the practically dead mother plant? Or if I get rid of all the fried leaves on the mama, will new ones grow in? Oh man, this is better than I'd hoped! I need to get a big honkin' pot. Hmmmm! Maybe just 8" or so.
