    Ever see a drosera umbrella?!?!?

    This is a first for me.. Found this at a local nursery for $2.
    1. I didn't know dews could be propagated from flower stalks.
    2. Anyone have a clue on the sp.? I'm thinking rotundifloia?

    That's such a perfect little umbrella-plantlet!
    No idea what it is, but I can't wait to see how amazing it does with you!

    In venus flytraps the term is false vivipary. I am guessing the same term applies here but I could be wrong. There could be another biological mechanism in place that is causing this.

    Woah! That's sweet. Could it be spatulata or is there a distinguishable difference between the two that I'm missing?

    I'd say spatulata also...but that plant isn't too happy. Give it some light!

    I also think spatulata. I have had this happen before. It is rare to happen, but fairly common in CP's. Helis will also sometimes get growth on flower stalks. You can propagate from flower stalks but it is much harder then leaves so no one really does it. I have a feeling this is some what caused by the fact this plant was most likely a TC plant. Some left over abundance of growth hormones. Just a guess not based on fact.
