Newbie here. I recently got a pot of Drosera spatulata and something else came with it (in addition to Utricularia sp.). I did some homework but was not able to conclusively id this other drosera, and was hoping someone here could help me out. The rosette is about 1/2-3/4''. I am also playing with the amount of sunlight this pot has been receiving, this other drosera can take a lot more sunlight than the D. spatulata that it shares the pot with...
Thank you

That’s a pygmy Drosera.

Nice! That’s a pygmy drosera. It should coexist just fine and won’t get much bigger than it is now. Just a heads up- if you want to keep it be careful not to disturb the roots. If you’re lucky you might get gemmae that you can pot up separately

Thanks, that is great to know.

Unfortunately I was keeping it outdoors and a couple of days ago I saw it had been plucked up and it was resting on the side of the pot, almost completely dried. :shock: :shock: I assume it was a bird, as we there have been many visiting our yard during the last few weeks. I covered the dried plant with the potting mix, hoping that it will recover, somehow, next year. :cry: I am upset by the situation, it was a very nice looking plant, I liked it a lot, but that is life. Thanks again
