    My largest Droso as of this evening (one of the two first ones to sprout... The other is by far the smallest of all of them, apparently it didn't like the move I did back in the start... but it is still hanging on!

    Looking VERY nice! And you just reminded me I have about 20 seeds in the fridge from November I meant to start 2 months ago. I hope they are still good.

    I had one start, then it fizzled.

    The others don't look like they'll do anything, so I gotta start the others.

    Me three...thrice!

    How do you guys keep the seedlings going? I used to think that they need lower humidity and less water but apparently, I killed each one with under-watering.

    I haven't got the time to try again since.

    Inspired by this thread I sowed about 30 Drosophyllum seed a month ago. I scarified half and and soaked all them overnight. A week after sowing I also soaked the mix in smoke water. That is water soaked in ash from twigs and leaves and dryed ferns I had burnt. A knowledgable friend suggested this and a week later the first seed germinated a week after that a secound.
    Each seedling was transfered to a slack pot where they are slowly growing now.
    Its mid autumn here now so everything is slow but Im hoping more will germinate eventually. Still if I can get the two seedlings to survive, two plants will be enough to keep me very happy.
    Now is the hard balancing act of enough water but not too much.

    Adnedarn I would love to see a pic of how your plants are now I bet they are huge?

    How did you produce the smoke water?
