    Hi,

    As soil, I usually use a mixture of peat and sand. I use this for seeds, as well as for plants. The flowering time depends on the species. My Drosera rotundifolia for expample flowers mostly in mid may, while many others are in flower the whole year.

    Hello Warped54321,
    So far there are no such carnivorous plants as "Drosea", they are called Drosera.

    The genus Drosera vary so widely that there is no simple answer to your question. Some mature from seed to flowering plant in a few weeks, others can take years. There are usually some Drosera in bloom at any given minute.

    If you use the search feature on a particular Drosera species you will most likely find cultural information. There is also a good deal of cultural information under the link, "Plant Care" above.

    I usually harvest my seeds when most of the pods have turned brown. I usually do it while the top few pods remain green. If I wait for them all to turn brown, often the bottom pods will split and spill their seeds into nearby pots, creating Drosera weeds and confusion! Plants have different flowering rates: some Drosera species open a flower a day until all the flowers are done. Other flowers open individually one this week, one the next. Even if the flowers do not unfold, seed is produced in most of the readily available species.
