Guessing Drosera seed(lings) & plantlet

Another 'Drosera giveaway' from my breeder.
What kind of Seed he throws? no idea. It was his joke. 20 people will get seeds, but the spesific will be a secret.
It was small.. I am sorry. I mean TINY........
It was black. It shaped like elips with sharp points.

Personal Reports:
Day 1. July 5th 2016.
Planting the seed over the wet spaghnum moss. Did not really count but its below 20 seeds.
Plastic container with small holes below, with water 1cm..
Put it outside, roof shaded.

Hope nothing goes wrong

Filiformis, burmanii, sessilifolia, capillaris long leaf, intermedia, tokaiensis.
That's what my vendor said. It would be one of those. Hahaha...
Idk how long should I wait for the seed to germinate. The D. Intermedia leaf cutting only took 20 days to sprout plantlets.

Trying out the water-strike method with the rest of the seeds. I am hoping it can grow nicely since this method already gave me 2 cute healthy plantlets.
The wet media method only gave me algae so far. It was sad.. :(
Will post pic later on.

Some floats, some drowned. :(

Don't give up on your pots yet. Like others have said it can take a while before you see any recognizable drosera. As long as you hold onto the pots and don't toss them there's still a chance.
