    white fuzz, Drosera filiformis x intermedia, what is it? help! pic included

    Received this plant about 4 days ago. Also I"m curious is it necessary that I put the moss on top?

    I did that because I was concerned about soil temperature.

    USDA zone 9B

    Northern California

    July average temperature
    day 75-85
    night 55-60

    July average humidity
    day 20-50%
    night 50-80%

    Soil - equal parts peat moss and perlite

    Water - distilled, tray method.

    Full direct sun 7AM - 5PM

    Outdoor

    Thanks guys!

    They're probably just hairs that come from the filiformis side. Nothing to worry about.

    It is not starting a hibernacula, D. filiformis (and many of its hybrids) just naturally have a thick layer of hairs around the base of the leaves. A hibernacula will be notably hard and completely covered in the hairs, and there would be no new leaves emerging from the center like there are on yours.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Agreed. Normal for the species, but a couple months early.
