    Hi all!
    I noticed a few weeks ago that I've got a weed growing in with my VFT. It's got big enough to photo now, and I think it's some kind of Drosera. It doesn't look like any kind that I'm growing though. Maybe it's a dormant seed from when the VFT was planted? Anyway, I'm going to grow it and plant it on when it gets a little bigger. Sorry about the size of the photo, dialup users!

    That's always a pleasant surprise! It does look like a Drosera. You'll have to keep us posted on what kind it is.
    The mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.

    Probably D. spatulata, but it is hard to tell. Post a photo when it grows out a little.

    I will do. It seems to be quite slow growing, but I'm sure it'll pick up as it gets some sun on those leaves.

    I can never differentiate any dosera when its still a baby - definetly let it grow a little (and I'll still have problems. When not looking in detail I suppose...)

    Yeah, I have one growing next to my D. Adelae. Im also wondering. When I first saw it, I thought it was a spat. I then compared it to a spat seedling (I know that this seedling was defenitley a spat) and they looked kinda different. Then again like Jason Wong said, its hard to distinguish.
