    Stowaway Drosera ID.





    A couple stowaways i just discovered underneath the umbrella (ella...ella...ella...xD) of my D. Adelae. Despite how it looks in the picture, you cant see any of those plants unless you lift up all of the leaves on the larger Adelae. The plant on the left is clearly a Adelae, probably a basal sprout (didnt bother looking closely), But the other ones have a different leaf shape, more broad and circular. Chances are they'll need more sun than the Adelae, eh? They look a little pale :P.

    And for kicks:



    Mini D. Binata's right? I was thinking capensis at first, but they def. 2 pronged, and sending out long leaves in a very uncapensis-ish fashion. They are in a pot of moss (and a little U. Bisquamata), and i have no idea how they got there. Seeds must have been there when it was shipped, cause i have no seeding or previously seeded binata plants. Fine with me though .

    I think it's safe to call those adelae as well. That's how they look when they're very small.

    Edit: Clue beat me.

    At least it can't hop pots unless you transplant soil.

    But yeah, those are baby Adelae. Just wait, in 6 months those ones will be as big as the main plant AND have their own little baby Adelaes under THEM.
