    Any guesses as to what this is?

    Its *supposed to be* a D. adelae. But this guy doesn't have the pointy leaf like its siblings. This is a baby plant, about an inch tall. Do adelaes grow rounded leaves in the beginning? Could this be a D. schizandra?

    Actually it looks just like a young D. adelae. It will take on the distinctive adelae appearance when it gets older.

    Cheers,

    Hi Larry,

    The plant in question is a Drosera adelae plantlet. Plantlets pop up from the soil next to larger D.adelaes. They resemble schizandra(roundish leaves) when young, but when they grow older they will develop the leaf-characteristics of an adult adelae(lance-shaped leaves).
