    I am relatively sure my D. filliformis 'All Red' seed has germinated.



    If these are in fact baby 'All Reds', they are my first cp germination success and that means it is time to uncork the bubbly!

    I need to know what to do from here please.

    Shouldn't those be labeled as F2 generation or something? Thought I read about that somewhere, because selfed seed offspring isn't as red or the "true" red form of capensis.

    I can easily write F2 on the container. Would you please comment as to whether these are actually Drosera sprouting or weeds. They are so tiny I had to really enlarge the image to take a look see. It would make me very happy to find out regardless of whether they are an F2 or not.

    I suppose somebody best explain the concept of F2 to me while we're at it.
    Thanks much, Laura

    They're Drosera seedlings! You can already see they're sporting carnivorous leaves.

    Hey, I forgot...
    What do I do with the F2? Do I add it or leave it off? Would someone please explain to me the F2 deal. Thanks, Laura

    Don't add it, I would like F2 generations to be explained by someone fluent in the field of it, as I do not understand it myself, as I don't use it everyday, better to wait for someone to explain it.

    I is here! Congatulations - you're a mommy!

    I always thought it meant second generation, but a quick Google has a site that goes into more depth:
