Return to the Trip Overview

That is not dead, which can eternal lie...
Based on the similar size and leaf outline, we guessed that this rosette belonged to another Drosera bulbosa plant. I suppose that this had simply already returned to dormancy. Even so, it was strange that it was completely dormant while others were so active in growth. Is it possible that something killed the plant?

We found a few other rosettes in similar shape and also ones in the splendor of full growth, but no plants were intermediate, i.e., in the process of returning to dormancy.
