    Oh shoot, you're right! Sorry about that! Both your names are short, start with a "C," end with a "Y," and you both have avatars of very well grown Cephalotus. That'll teach me to not read thoroughly...

    Just a thought... being in water, there's not a whole lot of incentive for root development.

    I agree, but there is still a chance it will send out a root to try and find anchorage. And as you can see in the last two pictures of Week 3, it looks like it might be trying to send out a root now.

    I've never kept plantlets started in this fashion in water for this long, so I'm really excited about what will happen next!

    I start D. capensis, D. Rotundiflora, and D. dichotoma leaves floating in distilled water every summer and they form roots with much the same success rate as when I lay them on soil, and without the mold problem I get on soil...don't know about other types of sundews though.

    Not too much development over the past week, and I'm sorry for the late update.
