    Are these gemmae?

    So I think my pygmy Drosera are making gemmae, and if they are I have a few questions.
    1. When should I harvest the gemmae?
    2. How should I harvest the gemmae?
    and 3. Do I just plant them like seeds?

    Here are the gemmae in question:

    Yup. Those are gemmae. Wait until they can easily be removed with tweezers or picked off with a finger nail and just lay them on top of some media.

    Definately gemmae. They now have the opportunity to spread into hundreds of other plantlets and take over

    As the others have said, those are definitely gemmae. Harvesting them shouldn't be too hard for you since they aren't surrounded by dew covered leaves. What I did was turn the pot upside down (using my thumb to make sure the media didn't slide out of the pot) and then scrape them off with a toothpick onto a new pot. I now have at least 30 D. omissa x pulchella sprouting with more on the way.
