    My Drosera venusta cocciculis has germinated!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    The seeds are from Tamlin. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    They are REALLY tiny, I htoguht they were weeds when they germinated. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    I looked closly and saw a tiny leaf with tentacles on it on each tiny seedling.
    Thye are under half a centimetre tall and the leaf is barely 1-2 millimetres across.

    Thank you for sharing your success story with me, I rarely hear how the seed I distribute fares. You will have some very amazing plants from this seed. I look forward to sharing more seed with you based on your success with this seed. Nice work!

    You are welcome, Tamlin. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Actually, these are the 1st sundew seeds that I ahve ever germinated.
    When the first few came up, I thought they were weeds and I left them in their plastic bag.
    But when 6 more came up, I realized they were sundews and immediatley removed the plastic bag.
    I now have approximatley 8 tiny seedlings growing in moist pure peat. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you for being so kind, Tamlin. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh, I just went to check them.
    On the biggest one, there is another tiny leaf unfurling.
    It is going to reach a total of 4 leaves. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    All the others have 2-3 leaves.

    The venusta seeds you sent me tamlin also germinated as well. I can't recall the species but the brazilian sundews also started sprouting.
    Oh yeah, I've been DYING for a tuberous sundew and the D. Pelta's are growing like weeds!

    Ah, I want the peltata too *wink wink* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Yeah, D spatulata shouldnt be a problem because it is from south africa, same as the venusta.

    D. spatulata isn't from South Africa, it ranges from Australia and New Zealand up through south east Asia to China and across to Japan.

    It does prefer conditions similar to those of many of the South African species though.
