coldwheathercrop(6A)July 10, 2010

hi everyone. my drosera adult plant is pretty much dead. all the sprouts and adult leaves died from cold (i think) but there is a baby sprout from the adult that is in the pot. should i just kill/remove the adult to make room for the sprout or should i wait to see if the adult comes back???

thanks for any tips.

I'd wait until the sprout gets a little bigger/more established before pulling the adult.

Just cut it off at soil level. It MAY even re-sprout .
