    Tamlin,

    I just noticed some seedlings that look kind of like yours, only no rosette.

    With D. peltata which is very close to D. auriculata, the rosetted stage is occasionally not produced. Usually this happens when the seedlings germinate late in the season when the photoperiod length is increasing. This is a signal for the plant to produce its ascending stem and to flower. Perhaps this is the case with your plants as well. Be advised that even tiny seedlings can produce the needed tubers to survive dormancy. If they are producing vertical stems then they are nearing the end of their season. If you notice them dying off, try not to let the pot dry out too quickly so that the energy in the plants can be drawn into the forming tubers.

    Some of my d. auriculata missed the rosette stadium because they grew in pure live spaghnum moss. It makes them grow tall very fast!
    Try it...

    good growing!

    Yeah, I planted mine in LFS that had been soaking for awhile, may have started growing again. They haven't really done much in awhile, i'm starting to think that it may be too hot for them where they are. Maybe i'll put them in a cooler tank later tonight under lights instead of part sun and see what happens with them.

    Just to quickly chime in...

    Mine looked like grass for the first month and than suddenly there were the cutest, dewy traps growing off the top!

    Also planted in mostly moss. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Trailmax,

    Weird, isn't it? I got extremely confused with it because of some "bog grass" or whatever it is, sprouting up a week before it.

    Oh yeah, btw...

    Sphagnum is not really appropriate for any tuberous Drosera. It is very difficult to supply the plant with the correct moisture content for dormancy in such a mix. 70 (or more)% sand/peat is recomended. D. auriculata and peltata can handle a slightly damp dormancy (especially mid north coast and alpine forms). It is very common for both of the above species to abort the rosette stage especially in mature plants. This is not always due to poor lighting but late rains can also force the plants to abort the rosette. Instead the plants produce scale like leaves more commonly seen in species like D. gigantea and D. heterophylla. Be very careful to remove ovaries as they ripen as this species can become a real pain and is difficult to weed out.

    Good luck
    Greg
