    I recently received a D. Adelae, but was a little surprised when I opened it. I was under the impression that it formed a ground rosette, but this one had a stem. My question now is, do D. Adelae's form stems or did I receive a mislabeled plant?

    Also, I make great efforts to assure that the plants I trade are correctly labeled [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks Purple Sundew. I didn't mean to reflect anything bad against you, it just wasn't what my mental picture thought it should look like!

    And just so you know...yes, d. adelae grows upright on a stem, not in a flat rosette. You might be thinking of rosetted sundews like d. spatulata and d. aliciae. (Maybe you mixed up aliciae with adelae?? )

    My adelae have reached stem heights of about 3 inches already, and that's not including the leaves themselves. Every time a new sprout comes up from the mother plant's roots, it tries to outdo the others. Each one is taller than the next.

    Hope that helps!

    Off-topic, but, what are ''rosettes'' and ''ground rosettes''?

    SnowyFalcon,

    Also, don't know how old your plant is, but adelae leaves are 'rounder' when the plant is very young.

    It does grow upright, and will form lance shaped leaves. You most likely recieved a Adelae so I wouldn't worry.
