    Drosophyllum finally sprouted!

    Not much to look at right now, but I'm still excited. This one took two months to germinate and I have a few left still germinating, but I doubt any will pop up. I scarified half of them and didn't do anything to the other half, and this one was scarified, so if you get drosophyllum seeds, I would recommend scarifying them. I also have some d. hartmeyerorum that have been germinating for the same amount of time, but I don't think that i"ll get any from them . Well, here are the pictures. (big pictures!)

    And one of it in its own big pot:

    I'll update in a few weeks.

    Did you scarify them?

    Yup.

    Though not as heavily as the previous batch that I think I ruined due to over-scarification.

    I'm just not lucky with seeds I guess. I also have four species of tuber sundew seeds that have been stratifying since March '08; no sprouts yet.

    Congrats! Drosophyllum are one of my favorites. Give it lots and lots of light.

    Fryster - how have you treated your tuberous dew seeds? What species?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    D. gigatea
    D. peltata
    D. stolonifera
    D. erythrorhiza

    Also have D. menziesii seeds still in a package in the 'fridge.

    I got these seeds from a grower in Australia last year. I wonder now if they might have been irradiated coming thru Customs.

    Unlikely they were zapped. Tuberous sundew seed are notoriously difficult to germinate except for a few species.

    When did they arrive and when did you sow them and how have you treated them? There are certain methods to handling them properly through the seasons since they are Winter growing sundews and experience a HOT dry Summer.
