TomR I agree with you but the tag said Sundew Droseria when I bought it that is why I posted like I did. I am trying to locate some true Sundews at this time.
Penny thanks for your kind words.

Some times garden centers or suppliers put the wrong tags on plants or someone mistakeningly puts a tag back in the wrong pot. Not everyone working at them are knowledgable at this stuff unfortunately...

VFTs are very slow starters. They do look like very tiny flytraps when starting out. What you see may be grass, a pic would be helpful.
