    Are this the same Droseras?

    So this new seedlings just popped up and I"m not sure where it came from or if its a new growth. The plant in the pot is suppose to be Intermedia capillaris and I don't know about the new seedling. If they are two different plant, is it okay they're growing so closely together?

    Army of ants invaded my grow area and lost

    Two days ago I noticed several ants hanging around my tray and I got kinda excited because there's been a shortage on flying insects. All my pitchers had nectars dribbling down them and by the time the ants were all captured, all the nectar were gone ^_^. They managed to reach the pots...
