Am I tripping or is my drosera propagating a cutting while it’s still alive and well?
And if so does this mean I’m growing an undead sundew?

It's possible. We see split leaves, split stalks, false vivipary, and more all the time. If it continues to grow like that, clip that leaf and propagate it.

Are you talking about the "green" stalk or the reddish one with sticky stuff (forgot the word, too lazy right now to look up) on it? Either way a couple of mine are doing the same thing. Will have to see how they progress.

I can’t really tell. It almost looks like a lacewing but I don’t see any wings. I’m extremely new to this but it’s right in the middle. I haven’t seen a bug caught right in the middle but don’t know if that’s still part of the trap

Something tells me you’re gonna let it ride a while. ;) Let us know how it progresses.

Usually when you have a strike(require sitting in water 24/7), it starts out as a small green bud and unfurls into a set of leaves. Pretty sure that's just a green bug, but let's see.

I caught this guy for comparison. If it’s a bug it would be this one. They’re both the same color and I think toward the bottom they kind of look like legs 😔. Maybe it just flew into it head first and his face was digested.

Kind of a wicked looking dude, too! :lol: Yeah, probably a green bug of some kind...possibly that kind. And, what Andrew said...strikes start out as little nodes that unfurl into a micro copy of adult leaves. I've got some in distilled water right now, and they're tiny little things. It's interesting to see the leaf cuttings *appearing* to still have dew drops while in the water. Cool.
