|I would just let it grow.|
When it gets larger, it will fall over....just have some oil ready.
They seem to grow really fast on the flower scape ( or spike )
I would cut it only when the scape turns brown[/QUOTE]
Oil? Whats that for?
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
My Grow List
Thank you. I've read about a lot of people getting them on their plants and then when it happened to me I was at a lost. Why does this happen? And yeah, what do you mean by oil.
Some dendrobium orchids will do this whenever they get overwatered before flowering. I would guess it is somehow genetic, with some kind of a trigger, though I don't know what triggers it in sundews. I really doubt it would be overwatering though. It might be something that could use a little bit of study, it would certainly be interesting to know.
I would guess the oil comment was a joke - baby oil?
Or I may be a bit confused on that as well.
i know that in phalanopsis orchids if the plant is really old it produces those offshoots, could be the same in sundews. Is it a very old plant?
I have no idea. I got it from Home Depot which means gublers. I know that it is full grown and it flowers constantly. Other than that.... How do you tell how old a plant is. If it's from gublers I don't think they would keep their plants around too long before jsut getting thme out on the market. It was flowering when Ibought it though..... Thanks to everyone.
I am very interested in hearing more of this plantlette that formed on the scape of your Drosera spatulata. Is it a complete rosetted plant, with petioles visable, or is it just the trap parts sticking out from between the buds?
I heard the same thing can happen to venus flytraps
