    Oooh, Andy said he has some, the other night in the chats.
    And I think Exo might have some.

    I am having trouble finding this as well. I have send in germination, but it has been 4 weeks and nothing showing. I have never had trouble germinating this before.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    I also just sowed some of my Drosera burmannii seed. I saved this seed in June 1988. I probably have more than 10,000 seed, but I don't know if any of it is still viable, until I can verify some germination. We're leaving Christmas eve for a week in Scottsdale with my in-laws, hopefully some of the many varieties of seeds I've recently sown will have begun to germinate by the time we return.

    It's most exciting to sow seed, leave them alone for a while, then discover they've germinated and are growing. Less exciting, but still fun, is watching them carefully every day, to witness the moment they begin to germinate.

    If I successfully germinate some, I'll offer to share/trade some.

    They germinate best when totally ignored and they do so in pots not intended for them. I have about a half dozen recent sprouts, in 4 pots.

    I can attest to Jim's comment. I just had a pot of D. burmannii and P. lusitanica come back after nearly two years of being all carpet moss.

    P. lusitanica is another one that does the Phoenix thing and shows up all over the place, as does D. capensis, D. intermedia, D. capillaris, D. natalensis,.... This is why I now have "D. roundandstickia" in my grow list!
