The seeds have a reputation of being difficult to germinate. A few people say they've treated them as any other South African Drosera like D. natalensis or D. aliciae. My results so far show the media should be very, very wet. However don't be surprised if it takes 4-6 months for seeds to germinate.

    Andreas Fleischmann and Christian Dietz report a pink flowered form which was actively growing during the summer in constantly wet conditions. Whether or not these do not have/require dormancy is not known. My experience with the white flowered from Stormsvlei Kloof is the plants decline and will not flower if given insufficient dormancy.
    So hot dry summers and cooler, wet winters?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Basically. If you're growing tuberous Drosera you should have no problems with these.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    They should be more careful in the future.

    Hmm my D.trinerva is still growing and it doesn't know that it can't withstand temps below 40 It was 28-32 * in my coldframe last winter
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    I probably should have worded it more along the lines of- "I should be more careful in the future".
