That is quite an impressive collection, Cthulhu138; and you even have one of my most wanted plants, Drosera zonaria. I wish the tuberous species were more readily available in the US, though I need to upgrade my lighting before I even think about buying one.

You've been busy today! Great-looking plants. They are making me hungry for more sprouts of my own. I finally got one of the D. modesta coming up so I am waiting, not too patiently, for more. The warm weather lingered very late in Pacific Northwest.

It's been abnormally warm here too but my plants are grown in the basement where it always stays a bit cooler. I've found that as time goes on and the plants settle in more, they set their internal clocks and come up at the same time of year regardless of external weather and temperature.
3 more D.magna have come up since I took that photo yesterday morning !
Nice! D. magna is the look I really like, what is the time frame from sprout to the picture you posted above?

1 week later.......................
Drosera aberrans - This species requires a somewhat moist dormancy to prevent the tubers from dessicating.
Drosera basifolia - I have no idea what the 2nd tuber decided to do this year. Rather than coming up as a single plant, it emerged as around 20 smaller plants.
Drosera hookeri emerging with Pterostylis curta, an Australian terrestrial orchid.
Drosera lowriei - Type Plant with flowers.
Drosera lowrie - Giant Plants
Drosera magna - This species does not often flower in cultivation. 3 additional tubers have emerged since last weekend and the parent plant has sent up 2 growth points.
Drosera monantha - Emerging flower stalks.
Drosera prostrata - Each scape has several flower buds.
Drosera squamosa - Sand Growing Form
Drosera squamosa - Laterite Growing Form. It appears that my attempts at hand pollinating the flowers was successful.
