    havron, Tristan, I also got mine from the ICPS seedbank! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I think a good idea is to give Brittnacher a small donation (I gave &#365). When I did this, he gave me the "Beerwah" form is addition to Pilliga Red.

    And when our respective plants flower, we'll be able to send some off to the PFT organ.

    Pleasantness! :biggrin: heh heh

    I also got some burmanii seeds, although not from icps.
    I sowed them a few days ago, hope they germinate. Wish me luck! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    fellow burmanii growers... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Larry, what conditions are you keeping the seeds in? With plenty of warmth, light, and moisture, germination will be 90%+.

    Not too warm, around 68 degrees during the day outside. I covered the tray with plastic wrap and poked some holes in it. I tried sowing some other Drosera seeds but did not poke holes and left it in a darker place, it got attacked by fungus and I don't know if any will sprout. Oh, and I top watered so most got buried [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    I've learned my lesson, so I have confidence in these seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Your setup sounds good, but you may be keeping them a little too cool. Optimum temperature is 80F. This may be why you had a problem with damp-off.
