    Misplaced Drosera regia seed germinating!

    I was very pleased to find a misplaced packet of Drosera regia seed I purchased from Silverhill Seeds about 4 years ago while sorting older supplies.

    These are all the more special since they came from Silverhill Seeds.

    A good number are germinating, hoping for a decent amount of variation to find some unique individuals, but just relieved and overjoyed that the seeds were still viable!

    It's always good to get more genetic diversity out there for D. regia. Congrats!

    Nice! With the seeds sitting for 4-years, how long did you have to wait to see them germinate?
