    Germination Questions

    So here is my question. I have a flower stalk coming up frome my spatulata. Is it possible to germinate the seeds on sphagnum? Sorry if this question seems childish but I have very little experience in sundews.

    When I grew them, I had no problem with germination.
    Just sew them on sphagnum, keep moist, warm and well lit, and soon you'll have new plants. I had a whole forest of them. To think of it, I did the same thing with all the droserae, not only sub-t/and tropical ones, but also with temperate ones that need cold germination and they grew just fine. Just sew them and they'll grow.
    Now I'm waiting for seeds to germinate as well, and I'm sticking to the old method.
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.
