    You might want to check CPUK for the post by Phil Wilson on tuberous 'dews. Sean answered it well though. One thing I would like to add is that it can sometimes take years for germination to occur so do not toss the pots if you do not see anything this year. I have a pot of stolonifera seed that is getting germiantions now and it is over a year old (I remove the sprouts to individual pots so I know these are not rogue returners.)

    Hello,

    I planted some D. auriculata seed in April, 2004. This is m first attempt at germinating and growing tuberous drosera. The pots where kept dry until about a month ago. I have been top watering the pot with my sprayer. Today, 11.2.2004 I noticed about 20 seedlings. I wasn't expecting germination this soon and the pot was not in a well lit area. What is the normal look of D. auriculata seedlings after germination? Mine are about 1mm tall with two leaves. One at the base and another at the top. I had thought these would be a rosette until the plant developed further. I am guessing the low light caused the plants to stretch.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    I have 20 + peltata, but nothing else showing. Maybe an exchange if they make it. My peltata are forming rosettes.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    D. auriculata will form small rosettes the same as D. peltata but a darker green. They likely have etiolated due to the low light levels.

    Ok, thats what I was thinking. They now have ample light and should do well with it. They may have sprouted over the weekend as I was gone and did not get to the pot until this morning to find the sprouts. Its been a bit overcast for the 5-6 days around here. Just wish I was around to get lights up in time.
