    Hi,

    Drosera nidiformis is a south-african Drosera. You can sow the seeds immediately. Provided, that they are fresh, they will germinate well. This species is not hard to cultivate. It likes lots of light. You can keep it warm for the whole year.

    Here are some pictures of mine :

    Here is a link to the ICPS germination guide. It has both D. nidiformis and D. spatulata pages. As well as some others. There are also pics there. ICPS guide

    nidiformis is a very easy Drosera, so is spatulata. Just scatter seeds over a mix of moist peat/sand, keep well lighted and humid. They should grow really fast. They don't require a dormancy.

    Here is the page where Tamlin basically outlines how to sow Drosera seeds. 10 types of Drosera seeds

    Spec, You dont really want them in direct light cause of algae growth
