    Could you be more specific abot the root type thing? Where did you get it? I have seen D. adelae, D. spatulata, D. capensis - all very different looking plants from each other - form plantlets.

    It would also help to get a description of the plant itself. Do you know what sundew it is? If not, could give some details on what the plant looks like (size, color, shape [upright, rosette], leave shape, etc.)? Where did you get it from?

    I'm guessing it might be D. adelae as they produce new plants easily from their roots, but really need more of a description to be sure.

    Well, now you have more D. adlae. It's the experience of most people who successfully grow this plant that they have LOTS of them before long. Just clip 'em off with as much root as you can and pot 'em up! Give 'em to your friends! Trade them!

    How big should they be before i clip them? You can just leave them there if you want to right?

    Sure! You can leave them there. I usually have a couple submerged in my water tray. I usually clip mine off when they get a inch and a half or so long leaves.

    When you put them in the water tray are they already clipped?
