One of my favorite drosera is "Scarlet Tears". Unfortunately, it's sterile, although it supposedly has beautiful flowers. I say "supposedly" because I think I might have sneezed as the flower was opening and it was already closed when I recovered. Anyhow, if you look at the pic, you'll see a typical drosera multiple flower stem on the left and a single ex-flower on the right. The thing is, the single flower/seed capsule? is twice the size of the ones on the left-hand stem. Does anyone know what's going on?

Hmm...
That's really strange, but I'd say it's a false vivipary forming on a flower stalk that assumingly has no flowers.
Thanks and happy growing
