    I prefer to add a layer of milled sphagnum on top of the peat:sand mix for germinating seeds. The anti-fungal properties of sphagnum helps cut down on damping-off.

    The tropical/sub-tropical droserae are probably the easiest cps to start from seed. Among the easiest are drosera capensis, aliciae, capillaris, spathulata...and a lot more.

    keep me around room temp (warm..like 80 degrees? dont worry, if they are covered in a bag, heat will be trapped in the bag, so it will get warm fast. I will be having alot of D.capensis 'alba' seeds sooon, like in a bout 1 week, and many other drosera seeds. i alos have p.ionantha seeds now. message me.

    temperature is best at 75-80F.

    Also, click on 'Germination Guide'--very helpful.

    Warm temperatures are good for tropicals, but other species have other requirements. Australian tuberous and South African winter growers germinate best in cool conditions: 51F/10.5C is about right. Petiolaris prefer it hotter.
