    i have a d.adelea and it has a root hanging out of the bottom of its pot with a plant growing on it . which i just noticed and also its leaves have baby plants growing of the leaves that are laying on the moss. its wierd with all these all over the plant . I probably will take the root and trim it so i can grow the plant atached to it then i will repot it and remove the little guys too. Shouldnt it flower soon? its 4 inches tall and very vine like.

    You are the second person to have this happen, congradulations. (I was the first). I am doing an article of this for most of the CP newsletters and others. I believe this is now becoming a common occurance. It's called a "Passow spawn", named after Jonathan Passow.

    But in some of my cases it wasn't touching the moss, it was still in the air.

    i think that this happens becuase. One thing the leaf is practically in the air but because of it being conected to the plant it gets its water and it half lays on the soil so it causes plants to grow . Also because of its 100% humidity it has makes it root easily.

    like larry said, roots coming out of the bottom then sprouting are very common, if you look into the archives youll see that its happened alot

    Read the quote again, and you'll see that's not what I said. I quoted about the leaves having babies, not about the roots having babies. The roots are common, the leaves are new.

    This is also not true. It is common for many Drosera species to prodcue small plants on the ends of the leaves in humid environments. The extra moisture in the air allows the plants to be produced as it is similar to being in contact with a damp soil.

    I have had the occur on many occasions in the past in my very humid terrarium. Species I have had this occur with are D. binata, capensis, intermedia and adelae.
