    Hi all. I have what I believe to be a D.capillaris. It seems to be producing two completely different kinds of flowers - a large, long lived, yellow one and a small group of tiny, short lived, pink ones.

    Notice the two flower stems at the upper right? The bronze stem has the little pink flowers



    and the green stem has the yellow flower.



    I've got to assume that somehow there's two plants in the pot but I only see the one. Anybody know what's going on? Thanks.

    With the over growth of the moss, you don't quite see the tiny leaves or the grass blade of the utric. Trim back the moss as you can see there's another plant besides the D. Capillaris. There aren't any sundew that I know of that produces yellow flowers and plus look at the flower structure.

    The yellow flower is Utricularia for sure, my bet would be on subulata. As I have stated many times, be wary of this plant as it can (and will) be a noxious weed in your collection, and is especially dangerous to other Utricularia, out competing them. The Drosera appears to be the long leaf form of capillaris.

    Thanks for the info. The pot in the picture is 2" square, so the plant's about 1 1/2".

    I'm really curious as to how the Utric got into the pot. Maybe a seed was stuck to a capillaris leaf at the grower's and germinated after the leaf died?

    Anyway, what's the consensus? Should I leave the pot alone or try to separate the plants? Should I keep the Utric or is it going to be a pest? Thanks.
