Hey, recently received this tuber and I'm at a loss for the orientation at which to plant this. It almost appears as if there are two that are joined; one which is wrapped in something? If anyone knows these kinds of sundews, could you tell me if the the red bulb faces up toward the sky or towards the ground? Pics are scarce and confusing at best. Thank you.

The tuber will have an eye, like the eye of a potato. Look for it and plant it with the eye facing skywards.

Thats the thing, nothing really stands out, I'm wondering if the eye is that junction point. Here are a couple other pictures, one is a possibility though. I'm just not wanting to plant it upside down lol.

Thanks for your help guys, I really appreciate it. Kinda upset because the tuber dropped from the tweezers and separated at that joint lol. I threw them both in though, maybe it'll strike, we'll see.
