    I just used a 1:1 peaterlite mix, and so far haven't seen anything. ugh. Can't even get easy drosera seeds to sprout. I guess I'll keep playing the waiting game, and will try to increase the light they are receiving. How long should these seeds be viable?

    I ground up my LFS and put it in the to-go container and all of my drosera varieties have sprouted, not just the Burmannii.

    I'm struggling, too! I don't get it. It was easier when I was a newbie than it is now.

    If you get fresh high quality burmanii seeds they sprout almost anywhere when you give them humidity and warm environment. I tried once they even sprouted on wet tissue. For me peat/SiO2 sand..... 50/50 mix works perfectly. Sometimes it just takes a little patience with the seeds but the results are worthwhile:-) Good luck!

    I use peat/silica sand. Mine sprouted within 3-4 weeks under 4 T-12s about 5 inches above. RH was around 50-60% with a slight air circulation 24/7. At this rate I'll have plenty to send in a few weeks to those that werent so lucky as us : )

    The seeds of this species stay viable for quite a long time, andy gave me some over a year ago and I sowed them immediately, then I accidentally killed the seedlings, and a few months ago, one sprouted....in the same tray, same soil.it just flowered twice and is dying back as typical for this species after flowering. This species is one of the weeds of the drosera family, so be prepared lol.

    I was just checking a pot of D. spatulata to see if I could capture a flower in bloom and I caught a glimpse of something that looked different, partially obscured from my view. Rotating the pot 90 degrees:



    I have no idea how it got there.
