    Mine are doing the same Im not too worried though I think the root pulls its self into the mix. As others have said keeping them moist is important. They germinate faster that way as well.
    Here is a pic of Drosera lasiantha I could try pushing it into the soil but I think I would rather leave it alone it should know what its doing??

    I have had some roots do that. I agree, and just let mine do their thing. The plant have always sorted it out by the time they get a few true leaves.

    I would recommend you keep it humid until then, though, and well lit.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    How about simply adding more sand around the plant?

    Jim, that is the only safe way to do something, if you really want to, at that stage...just add more soil around the plant root. As said, they will find their way but in case they don't and see that the root is turning brown and die then you have to keep it wet and burry it.
    Best regards,
    Marius

    When I plant my gemmae, I fill a pot with 1peat : 1perlite, put a mm thick layer of 1peat : 1sand on top, spray the top lightly so that only a 1-2 grain thick layer of sand is left on top, put the gemmae on that, and mist them lightly every day until I notice evidence of a root hitting the peat layer..and this is using the tray method.
