    I was giving a look at my collection that had spent a good six months outdoors and in close proximity with one another. I am seeing several "volunteer" seedlings and some Utrics (livids, sandersonii, and bisquamata) popping up in odd places. Most of the Droseras I can identify as being spatualata and intermedia. However, I just noticed one in a hanging basket where I have a Nep. cocchinea. It looks nothing like any Drosera I have in my collection Atop of its stem is a crescent shaped and dewy tentacled structure. I haven't the floggiest notion as to what it is. No, I don't have a pic of it - yet. What would look like a crescent?

    Don't know. The plant never flowered nor has it done any vegetative reproducing. I thought that too. The Neps were hanging from a ledge at the kitchen window and the binata was on the ground. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I just wish I knew how it got there! My mature plant never flowered. The immaculate germination?

    The fertile clones self seed with a passion equal only to D. capensis. I have the weeds coming up everywhere, all the time.

    I have confirmation that it a seedling of forked sundew persuasion. Whether it is specifically a binata....? Furthermore, MY binata....? Paternity? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
