    The main thing with drosera seedlings is that they need A LOT of light, as much as possible, it cannot be stressed enough. I have some D. rotundifolia 'Charles Darwin' seedlings that germinated a couple months ago, they've got this red color going now so I know that I'm doing something right. Been meaning to take some pictures of them as well.

    Oh, so I shouldn't let my D. capensis flower? It has no dew, but seems to be fine making tons of new leaves and flowers.

    Well, in about 15 days I'll have my plants outside. I doubt I'll have the seed in two weeks! The sun is the best light.

    the reason they are saying to not let it flower is a running joke that some fear they will take over the planet. Go ahead and let it flower. If you don't want capensis all over the place, clip off the flower buds as they close. If you wait until they swell and turn dark you can collect more seeds than you could possibly want...

    I'll take an expedition over to every continent and plant the seeds, that way they CAN take over the world.

    Now if only I had the heart to do that, and the money.

    Darn. So close.

    Thanks!

    They really ARE a very nice, attractive, robust plant. I'd take one over those little south African Drosera that all look the same to me anyway, anyday.

    They're just so prolific.
