    Magical wonders in my U. dichotoma pot

    As the title states, there are many magical (not really, Lol) in my pot of U. dichotoma.

    First of all, is this a seed pod? If so, do U.dichotoma self set? I thought it was going to bloom, but it didn't.


    Second of all, why is this flower different than the others that bloomed? This one's white and pointy end.




    Third of all, I found this little hitch-hiker! Could this be D. capensis? If it is, it's true, they're a weed. XD


    And four of all...is this just a little clump of weed?


    And fifth of all, is this live spahgnum or does it have something to do with the mystery flower? Sorry for the blurriness in this pic.

    Thanks glider . I sure hope it's another species. It would look cool when they both bloom.

    No, U. livida had a round, broad bottom that's a bit purple.

    *GASP* I found another sundew on it! It's a lot smaller than the other, but has more growth. Not going to bother getting a pic becuase it's hard to even get it on the pic. Same leaf structure.

    It did have flowers like that, except they were itty-bitty and not as purple. Maybe it's a U. amethystina? I noticed that the part that it going outwards went down a bit.

    its either livida(which can be variable) or bisquamata.

    and if that is a picture of your dichotoma....thats not it. however i dont really know what yours may be.

    No, it's not bisquamata. I and still don't think it's U. livida, but the white one isn't a picutre of my U. dichotoma, that's a U. amethystina its the closest thing I could find.
