    First 2 sprouts !! 11 days later. Pretty fast !

    (Sorry for quality, on the first one you can see the sprout on the center, outfocus)







    The conditions are:
    32C days, 26C nights
    90%RH 24/7
    T5 tube 24w+nanotech Crystal reflector.
    Misting every morning

    By the way, i sowed some drosera capensis white flowers seeds at the same time, in the same pot, and i got many sprouts since 2 days.

    Well done! Glad to see the germination happening already! The seeds were stored well, so they should yield a good germination rate and a fairly quick time to germination (10 to 15 days is pretty normal under ideal conditions).

    Just like my reaction to the germination of Drosera capensis...
    10 day germination??????

    Unfortunately my Drosera capensis have not exhibited this yet. They should sprout any day.

    I also hope that some random wandering bee pollinated my Venus flytrap flowers so that all the expended energy was worth it.

    Mmlr38: now i know what perfect seeds look like. Last year's seeds take many weeks to germinate. Your seeds are very viable, thanks for that! Right now almost all the seeds have germination!

    Plant Planter: in my experience, drosera germinate very quickly, maybe 4-5 days for me. Last year was the same thing. (Spatulata, aliciae etc)
    But to be honest, drosera seeds was just for fun, the real thing is vfts seeds germination

    Edit: try to put a propagation plastic dome over your sowed seeds, and put the whole thing in direct sunlight. The temperature will raise very hight, 35C+, and the germination will be faster and stronger. (From my personnal experience)

    The lil guys have grown ! Next week they will have their first lil traps, so the feeding process will begin. After that the growing speed will be increased.
    All the seeds are seedlings now







    I will post new pictures when the little plants will have 3 or 4 traps. Thanx for watching !

    What exactly do you feed them? Do you buy bugs?
