    Hello everyone. I have won some seeds to a tuberous Drosera peltata off of fleabay, and was wondering if there were some pointers on growing them.

    I am also current high bidder on
    Drosera auriculata
    Drosera gigantea
    Drosera stolonifera

    Any tips for germination and growing would be welcomed. I have read the one about 100 grit sandpaper on the gigantea seeds, but would like some experianced growers tips as well. Thanks

    Only advice I can give is to sow them, keep them cool and damp and be prepared to wait. It took 3 years for me to get germination on my D. ramellosa

    I have never scarified my tuberous seed and they have all germinated. ANd stolonifera and gigantea are among those I have grown from seed

    If you're going to have a long wait, be sure to prep your media well to avoid the slime & mold that tends to happen w/ wet pots which sit for looooonnnnngggggggg times ...

    Ron could you elaborate please. I am still relatively new and I have a pot right now with slime that I need to repot. How exactly do you prep for slime?

    I've used a light dusting of cinnamon before. It seemed to work ok.
