    My 4" pot of germinating <i>Drosera nitidula</i> ssp. <i>omissa</i> gemmae is developing a light, patchy coat of white fungus. It's not that bad right now, but should I be worried?

    Shawn,

    Scrape out the fungus and all the soil around it. If the gammae have not actually dropped roots you might want to consider a new pot all together. I had a fungus wipe out all but 2 of my pulchella gemmae in less than a day. I was quite mad at myself.

    I think they have put down roots already, and they have definitely taken on the early appearances of pygmy sundews. I will scrape out the fungus as you say. Thanks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
