    That would be the worst ID bungle I have ever heard of, lol. A tropical tuberous Drosera mislabled as a temperate, cold dormant one.
    Not to mention, the seed is usually mislabled from the start, and that should not be the case here, as once the plant started growing upright someone should realize they have a tuberous drosera instead of D. rotundifolia(would D. peltata seed survive the typical stratifying fpr D. rotundifolia?) .
    Oh my, oh my.

    I've seen lots of Drosera rotundifolia that were growing in competition with Sphagnum and in conjunction with lower light levels, like when in my refrigerator that looked exactly like your photo. They are not hybernacula, they are attempting to begin growth. If you force them to remain dormant you may lose them. When they get like this I usually coax them into normal growth by gradually bringing up their temperature and light levels.

    Indeed it is Drosera rotundifolia, believe it or not. Obviously hasn't see too much lighting leading to elongation as shown. I was apparently in a hurry when pulling that one, unfortunately sometimes happens since I pull and wrap all the orders. With this as well as any other problem with plants, I am more than willing to replace it if the customer is dissatisfied. Just a matter of writing me is all. Same policy that has been since 1992 when we started.
