    Personally, and I am no expert, I like mixing peat & sand and topping it off with a layer of LFS. I was considering a cherry, but decided against it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Drosera burmanii main need is heat, They grow well on 50/50 peat/sand. You don't need perlite. Drosera filiformis 'All red' also like it warm.

    Hellz, I don't know about the filiformis as I haven't had a chance to plant mine but if you keep the burmannis' covered with a plastic bag, they should germinate within a week. Next year at this time YOU will be giving away seeds.

    whoa, i just found out a good way to germinate seed.
    if u use compact flouresents as light for growing the seedlings, to germinate seed, keep the seed tray ontop of the light fixture! it warms the soil, and it keeps my seedtray a constant 83F [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
