    I sowed some of each batch of seed on 18 Dec 2010.

    A few days ago I checked them and some had begun to germinate. Last night I checked carefully and observed good germination with:

    Drosera binata - good germination
    D. indica "PPF" - good germination
    D. venusta - good germination
    D. capensis - good germination
    D. capensis ‘Albino’ - good germination

    The only one still not beginning to germinate:

    D. filiformis "FL RD" - No germination, yet.

    Great job! I thought my seed was viable

    The D. filiformis might just be taking its time. IDK.

    First poster after this gets the last D. filiformis "Florida Red" pack. If you don't need it, don't get it. In other words, one pack left, first one to claim it gets it. (In reality there are two left, one for zac
    I may have more seed soon, but I have flat run out of this variety. Congratulations TF! well, the ICPS seedbank helped decrease the store so you guys don't get all the credit

    @ Joseph Clemens: The ICPS seedbank lists the seed I sent as D. 'Florida Red' and not D. "Florida Red"

    Should this be?

    I know, I already checked that out. It is a typo, probably by the person donating the seed.

    Here is a link to a list of all the registered Drosera cultivars.

    -----
    It is quite possible that the D. filiformis "Fl Red" is just slower to get started. That's not unusual. I've had Drosera whittakeri seed that took several years before it finally germinated -->



    It was worth the wait.

    If I remember correctly I sent them as D. "Florida Red"--after your corrections.

    Anyway, I'm not the one that creates the listings. I sent seeds in as D. binata var. dichotoma, and I believe they were demoted and added to the ranks of self-fertile single forkers...too bad. There should be some differentiation.

    Also the D. indica "pale pink flower" was added as plain D. indica. If D. "Florida Red" gets special status, I believe it should too. There are just too many forms of D. indica.

    Nice link BTW

    ---------

    As to your seeds, maybe they are taking awhile, maybe your conditions aren't right, maybe it was a bad batch of seeds (probably not since several flower stalks go into a batch, and the seed is mingled freely.) Many, including myself, are having great success germinating this. I hope you do too!

    Let me know if you have all of them! And thanks for being so generous.. I haven't had any of these little guys in a long time so it will be nice to try my hand at growing my own from seed!
