I dig up my drosera capensis alba, because after 2 weeks no seedlings. And i found a little seedling that was growing and after this, i planted. The second thing i saw was a white "root" of about 1 inch and a half. and i planted in the media, like in the third image. The white thing is a root, because i never saw a white root, only brown with a little 1-2 mm white on it, but this is all white. Should i plant it horizontally, not vertically like i did ?

It doesn't really matter if you plant it horizontally of vertically: If you plant it horizontally it will produce multiple slower "seedlings" and if you plant it vertically you will get a fast growing single "seedling" most likely, if the conditions are right of course. I planted a capensis root vertically in January and its a flowering mature plant now. You have to be a bit patient but once it strikes it is pretty hard to kill the seedlings. I forgot to water one once for almost a week but it still survived :)
