I have a whole bunch of Drosophyllum seeds, just harvested about 10 min ago that I would hate to go to waste. I will give them away if you send me a SASE. 5 per person, to 10 people. Put your name on the list & PM me.

Fixed.
I'd love to be in this ohmahgoshsomarvelous SASE, but It's too humid for Drosophyllum.

Too humid??? I will try to get around to updating my thread linked above (thanks :D) but I will say I have one plant that I do not water AT ALL and it relies only on the water that mists on it from my fogger.... This is what I have read happens to these plants in the wild (only get water from a heavy fog in the morning, with no soil moisture) but this is just one paper I have read on the subject... That said- if high humidity is the only thing keeping you from trying.... Get them.

update 5/21/11
I just saw this so figured I would update it, the one plant I was allowing to water only from the fogger in the g/h ended up dying. I have 3 other pots of plants with 4 plants. Dare I say the one that is doing the best is the one that I water the MOST it basically sits in water at all times. (Started that once the plant got older, check out my actual thread to see more info on germination/potting/watering) just didn't want to leave this reply uneddited when I just read I had said to allow fog only to water- it just didn't work for me in the long term. They definitely still get fogged a lot, with zero negativity but they need more drink than that. http://www.terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120965

I planted 5 of the seeds about a month ago and got 5 to sprout! 3 damped off and the remaining 2 are growing great, they are both about 4 inches tall, and are growing 2-3 new leaves a week. Thanks again!

I just scarrified them with a piece of sand paper and planted them in a mix of equal parts sand,peat and perlite and dusted a bit of the mix ontop of the seeds and kept rather moist till they sprouted then kept just moist.
