    Drosera rotundifolia 'Charles Darwin' germination!

    Seeds were sown 02/18/07 on peat/sand mix.

    Germination noticed today.

    'Charles Darwin' seeds do not require stratification nor do the plants require dormancy. They may go dormant for a brief period (weeks) but that's it.

    Congratulations!

    Will you be able to post photos of them? That would be super.

    I took a couple photos but since I'm still using film it will be awhile before I finish the roll and get it developed.

    These things are tiny, not much bigger than the grains of sand in the mix.

    I wonder what distinctive features it has, relative to the straight up rotundifolia.

    Okay, so now the true leaves are coming out on the first wave - started at couple days ago. And the second wave of germinations started too - the population more than tripled almost overnight.

    These things grow like crazy!

    The D. rotundifolia from WA that I sowed a week after the 'Charles Darwin' (stratified) has yet to germinate. The paper towel may have been too wet. We shall see.

    I've read the article, but from my limited knowledge of genetics, I still don't understand how it can be a cultivar if propagated through seed.
