    I would never have guessed that this is a D. rotundifolia [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] When did you get this plant? Was the growth this past summer "normal"?

    I recommend just keeping the plant alive to see what it is one day, when it comes out of its funk. I seriously doubt its a rotundifolia. Keep us posted.

    i emailed dean asking him what was the problem with my plant , he said that he was growing it in shade for a while , now i have grown a few plant that require lots of light in shade and they have ended up deofrmed so maybe it'll snap out of this later because i'm growing it in full sun .

    Maybe it is a 40N mutant rotundifolia, don't the other 40N species make wierd hybernacuals?

    ... If it makes you feel better. I have a baby pygmi that is growing nice, big and compleatly upsidedown. Seriously, all it's siblings are just fine but this one insists on sticking it roots in the air and sitting on it's leaves... good thing my tank is so humid with my new waterfall... I should take a picture some time.

    Hmmmmm, I seriously doubt the ID on this one. It is probably D. peltata. Even when etiolated D. rotundifolia would not produce such a stem. When in the rosetted phase the mistake could be made. Time will tell: the traps on D. peltata when in the stem forming stage are very different looking from D. rotundifolia.
