    I'm willing to try. Have sent envelope for some d. capensis (sp?) seed. Are you wonderful people able to "hold my hand" while I experiment with growing from the seed?

    I tried some seed from the CP society a couple of years ago and failed miserably.

    I now have sphagnum peat, perlite, and long fibered sphagnum on the way.

    Will have to find the article mentioned above.

    I have 3 books on cps and one just on sarracenias and I STILL don't feel comfortable trying this. We never did cps in my horticulture classes.

    It's really pretty easy with all but a handful of plants. The only hard part is waiting for a plant to grow from a seed to an adult!

    Unless it's one that pops up as a hitchhiker in another pot. Then it grows like a weed

    I grow drosera from seed by sowing it in pots with other sundews
    It works well for the easy species like spatulata.

    You'll feel more comfortable as you grow more. Learn by doing. And stay active here!

    A fellow CPer was nice enough to send me a number of pings to round out my collection and he included one D. capensis...it died. The pings are doing fine.

    I have always had good luck with burmannii...as in the photo below.

    lmao! thats my capensis and dielsiana. The dielsiana I got the size of a seedling... 3 of them... all three flowered. I still have the seed. SOme seed fell unknowingly in my VFT seedling pot and they are germinating. I gave away 2 of my dielsiana to a friend, and the last one is flowering.
