Well, after two and a half weeks, one of the seeds has just started to sprout.
To be honest, I'm pretty surprised. We'll just have to see what it turns out to be!
Great! Can you see what the seed coat looks like? VFTs are teardrop shaped, black and shiny. Sarrs are brownish (tan to maroon), kidney shaped with a pebbled texture. Darlingtonia are tan, fuzzy kind of like the end of a Q-tip. Drosera are tiny (less than 1mm), round specs or a long thing flake (also tiny).
It can take months. Barry says he doesn't give up on a germination pot until two years have gone by. One guy on the ICPS board said it took 14 months for some of his Drosera seeds to germinate.
I wish my kit hadn't fallen into the carpet because I hadn't give up hope totally although I sowed some Drosera spatulata seeds into it, but those are different enough from the kit species that hopefully I could have identified them.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
The seed is a very light brown(based on your choices I'd say sarr). The tiny green thing coming out of it has a white fuzzy tip.
I now have a second seed sprouting(looks to be the same type) and the first is coming along nicely!
i got one of those and it did not work for me, but my best wishes
wow happy 1 year anniversary since last post. >_>
Yeah, I wonder what ever became of his project / experiment??

Well for me the two that I mentioned germinating are still growing(they are, in fact, sarrs). Still don't know what they are...
I know it's been 5 years, but has anyone maintained the plants from this thread they started in the kit? I just got one and wanted to see the plants if they still exist!
