    I think a sundew (either a capensis or spatulata, the only sundews I have at the moment) has sprouted in one of my Mexican ping pots which has vermiculite in the soil. Should I leave the seedling in the pot til it has grown bigger or should I transplant it now before the vermiculite kills it?

    Thanx for the help, LA Traphole

    It will probably continue to grow just fine as long as it does not dry out too much. Vermiculite has often been a component in some of my Drosera plantings.
