    While I appreciate the offer, I truly know nothing about either species and fear I wouldn't do their seeds justice. SDCPs, you've been good to me, and you you've been good to the community. You don't owe me anything. I'll get the plants out ASAP.

    They are tropicalish. P. lusitanicum at the least is very easy. It's an annual and self-pollinates. Keep slightly shaded, but otherwise from like any tropical sundew when germinating.

    I appreciate your kind words. They make my eyes well up a bit. I'm glad I could help you and other growers.

    Hey Ras!,

    The fundamental problem is d. adelae. It doesn't like to set seed. I will certainly check out that link though. Thank you so much. And yes, I remember you well. I looked at the plants you sent just yesturday! I'm glad you're enjoying the binata! I love the particular clone I sent you

    Of p. lusitanicum maybe. But seeds of this species are really easy to germinate. You should give them a try!

    I dont know...I cant even germinate venus flytrap seeds. They might be easy to germinate but everyone says they are difficult to keep alive after germination. I dont have grow lights either. I can only grow outside in the Northern California climate or on a windowsill that gets full sun for about 1 hour in the morning
    Gettin there...

    They're low light, moisture-loving. Really easy to keep alive. Just get a nice peaty pot with a bit of sand maybe, keep it wet and seeds sprout easy despite mistakes. I had worms in a pot...even the capensis babies were struggling...but these popped right on through, and grew really fast.

    Seriously, this is an easy plant. Make sure the surface of the medium is nice and smooth without boulders and moist.

    The plants you sent arrived in great condition, thanks! Sounds like you sowed the droso seeds correctly. I'm wishing you luck!

    Eric, in response to your PM (you've exceeded PM space):

    Sure! I'd love to trade again. Yes, there were some pods when I send the plants

    Why not save half of it for next season. The other half just try sowing on a heavy sand mixture and hope for the best. Whatever you do, don't throw it out. This annual waits for the proper time to sprout, otherwise it'd be no more. They seem to pop up in the spring around here. They stay in seed form through the whole winter. Pretty impressive. In short, I really don't know how to germinate them. They are weeds for me...which is basically the only way I've had success with them. They don't sprout when I want them to. I threw out my original batch only to get a d. indica empire by surprise!

    -Ian
