    Welcome!

    Totally off-topic, but: any wild chile pepper plants around you? Sonora is famous for its wild chiltepin...

    Cheers,
    Marcus

    Best source for non-gmo plants is the Native Seed store Seeds > Chiles/Peppers | Native Seeds/SEARCH

    Quick pic of my Drosera capensis babies. 90days old. Seeds from Costa Rica via Feebay.

    Sphagnum moss pureed in the blender. I used two waffle house to-go containers. Top had one hole to drain into second. Second one had many flat stones to support the weight. Don't laugh, the clear lid was perfect to maintain humidity until the plants out grew the lid.

    Yesterday, transplanted the peat mud pie into a glass 10" floating votive candle dish I got at mikes with 50% coupon. Drain dish, too.

    It looks messy because the sand immediately wicked the moisture and the plants have not seen sunlight today to grow vertical. They were nice and straight.

    An 1/8" carbide drill bit, some toothpaste, and non-caffeinated patience solved the drainage issue of using glass.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    When do they form the tentacles?

    So even though when covered, the condensation collects on their tips they are not Sundews?

    I can't see anything in there that resemble Drosera seedlings either.

    Contacted eBay seller. Grrrr. I have been suspicious and wondered how they will catch food without the liquid flypaper.
