    Tamiln, there are some shots of Drosera hilaris here of other growers plants:

    I for the life of me have been unable to get seeds of this species to germinate. I put them outdoors for the cold weather but nothing. Of course the heavy wind driven rain a few weeks ago washing out many of my pots didn't help. I guess I'll have to wait until next winter to try again with my reserve seeds.

    Thanks for the links. What a neat plant this is, and one I never had germination from like you sad to say.

    NaN,

    Have you tried giving them a hot dry summer first and then returning to tray the following winter? I have gotten great germination off of the closely related D. cistiflora this way.
