Hi, I bought an immature rosetted Drosera plant earlier in the year from eBay, and now I have completely forgotten which species it is. What I do remember from when I did my research prior to buying the plant is that it is uncommonly kept and gets large. Overnight a flower stalk appeared from the tip of a leaf and when I went to write to the seller to ask about this (my other Drosers have only had stalk from the center) I could not find record of who I got it from.

I would appreciate if anyone could identify the plant, or even suggestions may help jog my memory.

if you go to your ebay

click "my ebay" (sign in if you haven't when it prompts)

on the pull down menu click "purchase history"

then underneath where it says purchase history you will see an option for "see orders from" along with a pull down menu (I think it defaults to "the last 60 days")

you can then click any year from the past 3 years to pull up all purchases from any of the 3 prior years.

this will help you find the order itself also the seller

Thanks. I pulled the shoot. It was from the soil coming from near the Drosera's base. I had some strawberry plant seeds that accidentally got into the last pot my Drosera was in before I moved it a week or so ago. It was just a very stunted strawberry shoot!
