    New Drosera seedlings! (Pics)

    Hey all,

    Been growing some Drosera from seed this winter/spring. Pictures below are not the greatest but they work. I took some of them from my 8-10 yr. old Nikon Coolpix 8700 and the magnified ones through my 10x loupe using my iPhone.

    The loupe


    All images are from Friday night March, 21st 2014

    Drosera aliciae
    Soil:2 parts Sand 1 part Peat
    Seeds sewn: 29 days ago February 20th 2014




    Drosera burmannii
    Soil:2 parts Sand 1 part Peat
    Seeds sewn: 39 days ago February 10th 2014



    Drosera filiformis
    Soil:Long fiber sphagnum
    Seeds sewn: 11 days ago March 10th 2014
    Stratified in water in my fridge for about four weeks prior to sewing the seeds. It appears the filiformis is struggling to survive the damp as seeds are getting mold, but some are pushing on.
