If possible.

A gentleman in Florida sold me this segment off of Ebay.

Its essentially a piece of his backyard. He says its been natural and undisturbed.

Its not threatened.

Besides the red cappalaris and tar obvious sphagnum, what are these plants?

No Kate. They size of the plant is muuuuuch smaller than those. And the flowers were small as hell too, but white.


When I bought this about 5 months ago I did have the pings in a clump. They grew from seed, and died later on, this one hasn't flowered and has surpassed all of the previous ones lifespan.

It is probably pumila then. Size isn't a great determining factor. If not fed well, or just being unusual, it will flower when small. P. pumila has a really wide range too, so it may be possible that the Texas pumila area larger than that Florida one.

Bonjour

may be have you some picture of flower ?
P.pumila is often annual 'in situ' and the corolla quite small 12 to 18 mm long.
what surprises me is the medium (substrate).
see here :http://fern72.free.fr/siteweb/donnees-m ... mila.html# to "photos in/ex situ" for me it is the substrat for pumila I did not see them in sphagnum .
like what, everything is possible.

If it is flowering at that size, it's very probably P. pumila
The drosera are D. capillaris though it's possible that there are some brevifolia mixed in.

You've got some utricularia seed pods which probably means U. subulata, and if you're lucky, it'll be the non cleistogamous form

Hopefully this doesn't introduce a bunch of new pests to your area/ collection and hopefully nothing endangered is in that bunch of plants
