Unknown plant - very strange - can you help me with identifying it?

Recommended Posts

Hi at all,

a few years ago, I sowed some seeds of sarracenia obtained from crosses of my old plants.
In the midst of these seedlings, this strange plant has grown and I transplanted it to the sfagnera last year.
It is a very strange plant, with a hard consistency and in the upper parter this year it is giving birth to something.
Does anyone have any idea what it is?

Regards

Natale

I'm sure it's not a succulent plant or something like that because it was born and currently lives with the conditions of a sarracenia, now in the sfagnera with high water levels

A succulent will grow under those conditions for a while. It certainly looks like a succulent to me, and apart from the colour E. obesa does have a vaguely similar habit as a seedling.

Most seedlings will grow for a little while until their resources run dry, and until the growing conditions have become too toxic to survive. The coconut seedlings you can buy in shops with the coconut still attached, for example, get a lot of energy out of their massive seed, so they'll grow for (quite) some time, but as soon as they're out of resources, they'll quickly give up the ghost. By and large, succulents are actually surprisingly resilient against being flooded (in fact, many even appreciate it every once in a while), it's only when their roots start to rot that they'll protest.

When it grows up we will have clearer ideas, I will update later with new photos making macros :tu:
