    Hi VenusAshTrap

    What type of soil is that? Your "bud" looks like a type of slow release fertilizer found in some potting soils...little round balls. But its hard to tell from your pic. Do these roll around loose if you touch them or are they fixed in place with roots? If they are loose, its probably fertilizer.

    IF you are using commercial potting soil, you need to switch to the recommended soil mixes for VFTs. Especially if those "buds" are fertilizer pellets. Fertilizer will kill your plant.

    Your pic does look rather "celestial". [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Probably just some small plant life that grows from sphagnum/peat. I've had theese weed things and flat, shiny, two leaved things grow from sphagnum moss. I wouldn't really worry too much about it.

    I agree with plantakiss. It looks like a pellet of ozmocote fertiliser. It may not neccesarily been in the vft pot originaly, it could have got there via another plant. If its not fertiliser, then my second guess would be some kind of egg. Its not a seed, its far to spherical and smooth. I would remove it and destroy it to be on the safe side. Its not going to cause your plant any harm then.
