    I realize that there are 130 Drosera species out there, living in a wide variety of environments, with their own unique characteristics. I've received a variety of seeds from generous forum members (burmanii, multifida, indica, intermedia, binata). I was once told that Drosera seeds need to be 70 degrees to germinate. My conditions: LFS/peat/sand, saturated in DI water, at a window sill, covered most of the time to seal in humidity but opened for a few hours during the day to let more light in, temps ranging between 55 & 75 (different sills). What has been your experience?

    Until they germinate and have a couple of leaves you should not uncover them for more time than it takes to check them. Once they have some greenery you should give them a little more air time each day.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
