    Red face

    I go home for the weekend for the sole purpose of getting peat and perlite and what happens? The store talks me into vermaculite wich I now fined out is worthless for my sundews. I can't stand waiting another week to plant the seeds some nice people have given me. OH the horror of it all!

    The agony!
    If you can't wait, try sprinkling some seeds in a cup of distilled water and cover it with plastic wrap. I've used this method to germinate many Drosera seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Unhappy

    Really?
    Just float them on top? Plant them when they germinate?

    Nope, no kiddin! It works great, you can easily seen when they've germinated since they turn green. I don't know if this method will work on all drosera seeds, but its worked on the ones I've tried. D. capensis, D. anglica, D. intermedia, D. sessilifolia

    yup, i have done that by accident once lol. I kinda missed the soil while dumping the seeds in, and a few D.capensis 'red' seeds well into my U.gibba jar. Well, i didnt know until one day i say tiny little sundews in there. Good luck-Zach

    I used that method on some D. capensis seeds and got better germination than I did putting the seeds directly on soil. The fun part is getting the sprouts back out and putting them on soil [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] .

    Try using a "disecting needle" that's what I use. A toothpick works too, but the needle is smoother and they slide off onto the soil easier.
