    Thumbs up

    Drosera adelae, thats what those wide leaved seedlings must be, I can't see any signs of hair or dew, but if I got my two seedling trays reversed, that would explain everything! I feel much better now that I know what happend. So, mystery solved. at last [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    It is very unlikely that your plants from seed are D. adelae. This species only produces seed from crosses made between different clonal populations: the plants are typically self sterile among individuals from the same clone. Seed is occasionally offered, but it a rare event as these things go. D. adelae shows a prominent vein along the center of the leaf , even in seedlings - almost as if the leaf were "folded" lengthwise producing a crease. If this vein is absent, you will need to consider other possibilities. Hmmm, sounds like you need to evolve a better protocol to keep track of what you are growing!
