    I sowed some D. capensis seeds on Monday. They are not doing anything. My first attempt at germinating sundew seeds went great. Tons of little D. burmannii seedlings in 3 days.

    Do capensis seeds take longer?

    Also, How long does it take for gemmae to grow?

    Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    3 days seems very quick.
    Some plants can take 4 weeks before they germinate.

    You might see some activity on gemmae in 2 weeks.

    I think temperature has alot to do with germinating capensis seeds. I sowed some very fresh seeds that I harvested myself. It took some temperature fluctuations until there was a good uniform germinatin, nice warm temps.

    Patience, sunpitcher. I took 4 years to germinate D. ramellosa, and after 12 years, still have the plants and their offspring.

    Bugweed,

    Did you keep the medium damp all that time, or did you try to duplicate "rainy season-dry season?"
    I guess there is smoke water and GA3 too...

    Cheers,

    Joe
