Undead dew?

Months ago, my D. madagascariensis suddenly collapsed and died. Today, while harvesting some sphagnum moss from the pot (which I am now using to catch Nepenthes pitchers before they hit the ground) I noticed a small sundew growing right in the spot the D. madagascariensis used to be. Did the plant come back from the roots? I have not added anything to the pot since the original sundew died, and I have only removed moss and the remains of the old sundew. No sundews have ever set seed in the area where the pot is kept.

D. madagascariensis and many other Drosera come back from apparent death via new growth coming up from their roots.
That dew looks like a young madagascariensis.
