    Mystery sundew

    Found this little guy popping up in a new U sandersonii I got. Any idea what species it is, or is it still too small to tell for certain?Mystery sundew-20180202_210031-jpgMystery sundew-20180202_205942-jpg

    It can be hard to tell at that size. It looks a lot like D. nidiformis, but D. capensis looks pretty much the same as a seedling. D. capensis would be more likely.

    From what I can tell as a novice I think it's a capensis too. I was just hopeful that it might be something more fun. Is it too small to try to repot?

    You can repot at any size, just be careful not to break the roots.

    It's capensis
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    Not anglica; petiole too thick and for that size the lamina is too elongated already.
