    heat pad is really not necessary. I mean, it speeds up the germination rate, but other then that, not much. Dudes, nidiformis, and almost all other spouth african drosera are extremly easy to sow and grow. Just scatter on your medium, place in a baggie or something to retain moisture, and wait [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    PS: germination usually depends on the age of seeds, but this can be far from it. I have had 1 year old packs of Drosera macrantha seeds germinate and grow before (the plant growth number was low though, a few seeeds probably went bad).

    The heat pad won`t hurt though, right?

    The heat pad might be a bit much except for members of the Petiolaris complex, you dont want to cook the seeds, just to keep them warm, say around 70-75F. Night time drops in temps. sometimes discourage some species from germinating, but don't overdo it :-)

    Len, I believe that Clearies 3336 will clear that up. Here is what the ICPS guide says: "The plant is very susceptible to a fungus that causes the plant to turn all red and loose it's dew. A systemic fungicide such as Clearies 3336 can be effective unless the fungus becomes resistant from spraying too often. Do not use fungicide on a regular basis as that results in selecting for resistance. If this happens, use dusting sulfur."

    Good luck

    If you have that fungus the tentacles will not only be dry but will look kinda deformed and twisted. As mentioned a fungicide will clear it up but won't save the affected leaves. New growth should be fine.

    Is there dew on the tentacles? There is a red form of D. nidiformis as well as the more green form in the above photos. If there is dew, don't worry - otherwise cleary's may help.
