Hi everyone,

Since I won the Canadian give away, I am successfully growing sundews of various types.

Problem is, I put them in one pot and now I have no idea which is which.

Also, one died (I cut the main stem by accident).

1. Drosera..?
Image

2. Baby drosera?
Image

3. Bladderworts? U. Something soni.. ?
Image

4. Micro... drosera..?
Image

5. I cut this guy by accident but I'm hoping for a miracle that it will grow roots.. lol Image
Image

Thanks all! Image

The large plant here is a Drosera. Looks like a capensis to me, but I'm terrible at identifying Drosera species.

In the center is a baby Drosera.

Yes, it looks like terrestrial utricularia.

The big one in the first pic is Capensis, and the baby one next to it is more than likely Capensis too. The one in the fly trap pot is the one that needs to get bigger to tell.

Capensis changes a lot as it gets more mature.

I see lots of D. capensis. The one you accidentally cut is D. adelae which is known to send up new growth points from the roots regularly. The Utric will need flowers for identification, though it's probably a more common species if its a hitchhiker and the leaves like a lot like U. sandersonii. If that's the case it won't be long before you find out since it flowers constantly.

I agree, I see Drosera capensis on all the photos except on the one that was supposed to be cut off it's main stem. The seedlings also resemble Cape sundew.
All of them seem to be white version of Cape sundew, Drosera capensis 'Alba', except perhaps the seedling from that venus flytrap pot, I can see a bit of red on it's tentacles. I think. :)

They might need some more light

Ok so it is U.Sandersoni for sure. Hopefully the one I cut re-grow from its roots...

Should I move the micro D.Adelae? It hatches from the remaining seed that I thought I effectively killed all, about half year ago..

Being in Canada, it's hard to get more light without buying artificial lights.. i was thinking of letting them go into dormancy. But I am watering slightly more than summer to compensate for the lack of light.

Yes, the adelae will likely die like that. It needs very high humidity and light to regrow roots or start leaf propagations. In my experience artifical light is necessary, but it can be a cheap daylight cfl bulb in a desk lamp. Propagating queensland sundews usually will not work in low light levels.

Try putting the D. adelae in some good quality sphagnum moss, in my experience it tends to do much better in sphagnum based mixes.

Also, I would tentatively agree that the utric is probably U. sandersonii (there are other utrics with similar leaf shapes, like U. livida and U. warburgii). Just as a note, the leaf shape indicates that it could probably use some more light as well.

In my experience just putting D. adelae in stronger light will cause the leaves to quickly burn. I don't think there's much hope for that growth point, personally, but the plant should regrow from the roots pretty quickly.

In the post he mentions that he cut the Adelae roots on accident. So it's going to die unless they do leaf floatings close to a light source. That's how I propagate all my queensland sisters. Even the roots should be exposed to light to get more propagations.

I will update all of you whether Adelae ref rows from the roots or not :) thanks so much. You guys are genius.
