    Mike! How are the seedlings doing this far along?? Any updates on the second phase of the experiment?? Did you ever get a hold of D. hartmeyerorum seed to experiment on?

    I really appreciate this thread. I have a bunch of Drosera seed to germinate. Glad to see they do pretty well even stored for 15+ years. I like this method, much easier to control. Might try a few the traditional way still, for the name of science.

    Now to get a hold of some type of light setup and water germination equipment! This is where being in college still would have helped a lot; close enough to my professors to ask for supplies (petri dishes and tubes). Ha!

    That was a year and a half ago.
    Most of the the plants grew to maturity and flowered.
    Some, like the D. regia, succumbed to my mistakes. My second attempt at regia resulted in plants that are now 2 to 3 inches tall.
    Drosera hartmeyerorum germinated and grew to maturity for me last year. It produced a fair amount of seed. This species is kind of a Prima Donna for me. It prefers warmer temperatures than I have ready access to.

    The second phase, primarily temperate Drosera, grew well.
    I learned Sarracenia don't care for this technique.

    Good growing,
    Mike
