    Your pots and media look OK. Looks like about a 1: 1 , peat: perlite mix.
    What species of Drosera are they?
    Don't start to worry until 2 or months have gone by. Many species need a month to two months for germination.
    Are you sitting your pots in a shallow tray of distilled water? You want the media moist but not sopping wet.
    Put the pots in a bright location but sheltered from mid-day sun. You're in the topics, new seedlings can be a little sensitive.
    Consider covering the pots with something clear until they sprout, keeping them out of direct sun if you do this. Higher humidity encourages germination.

    Good growing,
    Mike

    Sometimes drosera can take a while to germinate. Just sit on the pots for a few more months. It usually pays to hold onto pots with no apparent life in them. It'll be a few weeks of nothing and then they surprise you with results.

    I wouldn't say it looks dry, more like there's a bit too much perlite. The plants probably won't care though as long as the pots are kept in a tray.

    The medium level has dropped and there's a gap at the pot sides. It shouldn't be like that.

    Capensis, and I water with a mist sprayer, I have them in a greenhouse. At first I covered with a suranwrap then someone told me to uncover. At first I had them inside my house then I put them in the greenhouse.
