    Hey, my nitidula x pygmaea flowered. It was a pretty flower one day and a trap the next.

    Here is a picture of the gooey leaf. In the second picture you can see the now closed bud.

    I bought this neglected bowl of CPs that had an unID sarracenia, an unID sundew, and a p. primulaflora in it. The sundew had a flower stalk with plantlets on it like that. It died though.

    It's fairly common with Pygmy species, especially the natural hybrids. Usually though it is a complete rosette: this appears to be a genuine modified sepal. The sepals are really just modified leaves as this photo proves.

    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
