    This is an amazing project cant wait to see how this goes! The fact that you referenced "Ancient Drosera Seed Project", with the year 1993 seems to be the biggest problem you have so far...carry on. : -D

    I didn't have any GA3 on hand at the time so I didn't tread the seeds. Honestly there were so many seeds that I had to work with I am not sure if it would have done it even if I did have some on hand! Getting everything setup and sewed took quite a long time!

    The seeds were collected between 1993-1999.

    I had some time this morning to take pictures of the germination progress!

    Some have a much higher germination rate than others so far...

    Will have lots of burmannii!

    Other species only have a few seeds that have germinated

    Lastly, there were a few packets of seeds that had no ID, so I put them together in this cell.

    Joe, do you have storage dates for the ones that are germinating the best? IE: how long were those specific seed lots kept before sowing? That would be interesting to know!
