    I just found a strage seedling specimen of sundew in my very limited collection. I never notriced it before. it looks alot different from all the others there.

    Well i cant post a pic here cause of my camera, but i can give a illistration f what this very small seedling looks like


    Its a single leaf on a small stalk> the single leaf is a narrow U shape with the stalk at the base of the U.

    Like so:

    |____| <---- Leaf
    |
    | <--- stalk
    |



    This one leaf has long tentecles, and it seems fully expanded, with all tentecles splayed out ready for bugs. The tentecles move rather quickly. Im not certain where the growth point is, because the stalk comes directly from the ground. Prey is pulled in to the bottom of the leaf, the top side of the base of the U.

    Any guesses? because i have no clue.
    that makes no logic

    That sure looks like you are describing a D. binata. Same thing happened to me in January - from a Nepenthes hanging basket.

    It depend upon which D.binata it is. There are both temperate and tropical forms of binata.
    But Both should be fine without dormacy. And both can take dormacy.
    Need all the experience I can get...
