    Hello all! I recently aqquired some Drosera binata seed from the ICPS seed bank, and have read about it, but I am curious as to if anyone has anything more "personalized" i.e: what to watch out for, treatment, stratification, etc. Unfortunately, I still can't find species specific information...

    Hi there,

    grow it like you would most other sundews, Drosera capensis in particular.

    One interesting thing is that young Drosera binata form leaves that look very similar to those of Drosera intermedia. Don't be fooled though, after a few weeks the end of the lamina will begin to widen and soon you will have your genuine forks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    good luck!

    I have never found the need, the seed germinates without it, and the plants can become weedy in collections.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. I had some sprout in an order I received in the mail.....and I think they were in the VFT pot (well, at least one was). I think another was in the S. purpurea pot....don't remember exactly. The point is that I didn't even know the seed was there! I got four sprouts, and I killed three of them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    Luckily one seems to have made it.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Here is the D. binata germination guide from the ICPS. I know many of you probably have already been here, but this is for the others who have not.

    Drosera binata germination guide.

    I just planted some D. binata T-form seeds on 4/17/2003. Keep me posted on how yours do, I will do the same.

    Thanks, Nick! That's the only one that I did see, did you get your seed from the seed bank, too? (if so, is it N.Z. or typical) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The only information on the seed packet from the ICPS is: Drosera binata T-form.
