    Is There Gemmae In There?

    Title should read: "Are there any gemmae in there?"

    I've never actually had D. scorpioides produce gemmae for me, but I was wondering if that is a gemma emanating from the stipules?

    Does not look like any to me.
    When D. scorpioides produce gemmae, you will know it.

    Could be the beginning of gemmae, but if they are you're still a while away from them being ready. If it keeps putting out new growth that looks like that, and starts to get the appearance of a sunflower head, then it'll be gemmae. Right now it could just be putting out stump leaves, which they do sometimes. There's also a narrow possibility that those are gemmae and you'll only get a few - every season I get one or two plants that don't really put much effort into budding off. They often don't self-scatter and the gemmae need to be picked off by hand; they're usually still good as long as you don't let them dry out. They can be stored briefly but keep in mind they aren't as durable as seeds once detached from the mother plant. (Don't make the same mistake I made last year, and store them dry in a jar "for later." I left them unattended for about four weeks and was rewarded with a few tablespoons of green Drosera bacon bits.)

    I see 2 on the right side of the crown. They don't look like leaves at all. If you really want to know for sure you can just try to take the bigger one of and then you will see if it's a gemmae or a unfolded leaf.
    Best regards,
