    Ok well some may remember my Drosera auriculata from last year and the year before. Its now in its 3rd year and i see one bulb sprouted so far and the rest should be up now that its been really cold lately. I usually get it to sprout outside late fall and bring in in case of frosts and freezes but it is happy outside in the cold weather and it gets it a jump start. Picture coming probably tomorow.

    None of my tuberous seeds have sprouted yet. I have 4 different kinds outside at the momment in the sun. I hope they don't take 4 years like some folks have mentioned.

    Way to go on the re-emergance of your Drosera auriculata!

    Don't give up! there's still hope yet for those stubborn seeds to sprout. I planted a couple of tuberous seeds in Sept, gigantea [Edit: actually Drosera gigantea] and petalta var. foliosa [Edit: actually Drosera peltata var. foliosa]. Last week i found tiny tiny little sprouts in the petalta [Edit: actually Drosera peltata] pot. They now are showing tiny dew pads. I did collect the seeds myself this Spring, so i know they were fresh!

    I ordered my seeds from a guy in Austraila on Ebay. Gigantea [Edit: actually Drosera gigantea], petalta [Edit: actually Drosera peltata], stenofila(sp) [Edit: actually Drosera stenopetala ] and one more I forget off the top of my head. I didn't mark the date I plant the seeds like I should have. I am not going to give up I will keep them for 4 years if I have to to get them to sprout, but heck I paid about 20 bucks for all these seeds!
