    I was looking at a pot of D. tokaiensis, and there are prolific numbers of flower scapes in it.

    I noticed a small sundew rosette growing off one of the scapes.

    If I can, I'll get a pic of it and post it tomorrow.

    Wierd!

    There's a term for new plant growth off a floral scape... it was in one of my CP books in reference to D. muscipula doing it, but I can't find it now.

    I have seen something similar to that online, very odd indeed.

    There are two terms associated with that. One is false vivipary. I'll have to search for the other term. I had a D. capensis do that last summer. Cindy, our Moderator from Singapore, posted a pic.

    I've heard of VFTs doing it as well

    That is exactly what the above link to Nick Hubbel's topic is about.
