    Question

    I noticed that my D. nidiformis started germinating after 12 days. As for the other 2 drosera, I do not know.

    My only experience with filiformis is through a leaf cutting. It responds well to this kind of propogation. D. nidiformis and capensis took ~two weeks to germinate.

    2 weeks is a very good track record: some seed can take years to germinate, depending on species. Never give up on a sown pot! If nothing else, you can always use the medium to sow a different genera of CP in, then if the Drosera do decide to appear, you will know which species it is as long as you keep the original marker as well.

    Stratification is a period of colder temps, usually a couple of months, that some seeds(like filiformis) need to experience before they will sprout.
