    Darlingtonia seedlings?



    So I've never seen a fresh-out-of-seed Darlingtonia. Is that what I have here, or do I have some kind of weed?

    in June I threw a bunch of D. Filiformis "Florida All Red" seeds in here and sealed it in a baggie under the grow lights. Some time later (July, I believe) I put some Darlingtonia seeds that I've been stratifying in the fridge since early February. Last month, I crumbled my Drosera madagascariensis's first finished seed pods up in there.

    It doesn't look like any Drosera I've ever seen, but they don't look... "Darlingtoniaish". Do I have some form of weed?

    As far as I can see, I don't think so. I see some of the seeds and don't really see anything. Try using a magnifying glass.

    If they produce flat leaves, they aren't Darlingtonia. Those do look like Darlingtonia dicots, however, so watch for Sarracenia-ish tube-shaped juvenile leaves springing up in between. I think they take one to three weeks to start producing leaves, but it's been a long time since I sprouted any. At least one appears to be some sort of grass/sedge/false moss type thing. (The cluster on the far left center.)

    From this vantage point they look more like a utric. Baby Darlingtonia look like baby snakes.
