    So the Drosera went to seed some time ago and I managed to collect up numerous seed packets. I SASE'd most of them away but after shuffling some papers it turns out I still have some from several months back. What is the chance that these things are still viable? I sprinkled the rest of the seed into a pot with my VFT's but so far no sign of growth there.

    I had tuberous seeds stored in the fridge for several months and they still germinated. I now have 40+ seedlings, well I don't know if they are tuberous just yet, but I do have 40+ Drosera seedlings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    LOL....do you have that capensis weed problem? I'm still trying to get some to grow for me. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    These did not get the luxury of being stored in the fridge. I went all in and chucked them into the mini bog and added a few seeds to a pot I keep my seedling leucos in. Thataway if these seeds can germinate I will know.
