    Hey there Goldy,
    I'm having a frustrating time with mine....Maybe just 'cause I'm impatient. I did manage to get a few to sprout, but those sprouts bit the bullet. One was my fault...knocked it off the shelf! (DOH&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] The other damped off, I think. I am currently trying the germination method in one of the prior threads in this forum...no results to report yet.

    Maybe lower humidity will help the seedlings survive. I do not believe that the habitat of this plant is very humidity at all.

    Hi there:

    Just thought to let you guys know that last week I just germinated another 8 drosophyllum seeds with 100% success rate. The method I used was exactly to what I had posted in one of the previous thread, if you guys need some help on the method, just give me a personal PM, and I will see how I can help you.

    Regard

    I am under the impression that the quality of the seeds makes a big difference with germination. I have sown two different batches of Drosophyllum seeds from different sources(using the "water method" described by Joenz, thanks&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]. With one batch, almost all the seeds germinated. With the other batch, only one seed germinated(maybe others will sprout with more time).

    Hi CP2k:

    I don't know whether the quality of the seeds would make any different, but I suppose it does kind of make sense if the seeds is not in good condition it should not germinate (by the law of nature - survival of fittest)

    I had germinated seeds that are as old as 6 years so, would be interesting to see how it turns out.

    Regard

    Joe

    A couple years ago, I germinated some Drosophyllum and Byblis gigantea seeds that were 22 years old. Seed of these two species can remain viable a L O N G time.
