    Possibly a petiolaris Drosera seedling, such as Drosera banksii or its close relative Drosera subtilis. Those are the only sundews I know of that actually have STEMS, not to mention that the latter plant is RED. I'm almost sure that your plant is a (very young) Drosera subtilis, unless the plant is a mutation. But that's different.

    plant planter neither banksii or subtilis are petiolaris complex Drosera. However, I think you're probably onto something with the subtilis. My bet would just be a weird plantlet that is messed up from something.

    plant planter: Just stop... How exactly would you even know anything about it? Ive never grown those plants or any australian plants resembling them, so tell me how you're so SURE that it is a drosera subtilis. I'm interested to know

    besides, if you took the time to notice; those plants have tentacles forming on a leaf thats coming off a petiole coming off a stem. this thing is pure tentacles

    I've seen a bunch of Drosera subtilis before, although I do agree that I was being unreasonable and that something is wrong with that plant, i.e. mutation, not, you know, wrong WRONG, just a bit odd. If you've never grown any Australian sundews before, then I have no clue what it might be. Plants are odd sometimes.

    well, sorry first of all, but this is why plants with mutations like this don't exist. The mutation was eliminated by natural selection, because while it may be cool looking, the way the plant grew probably wasn't very efficient.

    BTW I'm not commenting on your growing skills, I'm just talking about the biological stuffs.

    True. . . besides, the tentacle appendages were probably incapable of (or not accurate for) absorbing photons so the plant could undergo the process of photosynthesis.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
