    D. Regia hairy root.....?

    I thought some hairy parasite had gotten past my defenses and latched itself onto the backside of my sprouts. However, upon closer inspection it would appear the sprouts are sending out a real root. It is black hairy and has a red tip heading straight for the compost. Can someone please confirm this?

    Yep, a root, "hairy legs and all . . ."

    Drosera Regia roots are black, and looks like dead sticks. They are great for propagation though. You could easily get 2 or 3 plants from one inch of roots
