    Today, I was checking on my D.scorpiodes gemmae which have developed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]. Well anyway, I saw at least 10 drosera seedlings, at first I thought it was just D.rotundila seedlings, but I had one grew two months ago and it klooks nothing like thse seedlings. I have no pics of the plant, so the only thing I can is describe them. The leaves are round and has red tentacles. It doesn't look like a normal sundew seedling. Is this D.peltata? It was the only seed I recently sowed and none of my other sundew have flowered, but then again it could be something else?

    Ok, here is a little trick for you.
    You put the seeds of one type in 1 pot, then the seeds of another type in a seperate pot. Then label them. No don't try labeling each seed, label the entire pot.

    After you see something that has germinated, carefully look at the label, then rip it off the pot, because you really know its just more D. capensis. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    It could perhaps be D. binata?

    I'm sure it's not D.capensis [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Well if someone here had a pic of a baby D.peltata then you could look at it and see if it looks the same. I just put D.peltata seeds into cold startification the other day, they come out in 4 wks and go into a warm chamber to germinate if and when they do. If the do i will be sure to post pics of one. But thats a ways down the road.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Drosera peltata seed should not be stratified, nor should it be germinated in a warm environment. Ideally it should be sown in early autumn and will germinate when the nights and days are cool.

    I had the seeds stored in the fridge for a long time before sowing them. They were dry, and I sowed them in December, so they never got a warm stratification.
