I planted my gemmae in pure peat but I think a peat perlite 50/50 mix would be better. I think u shouldn't use sphagnum because it will over grow the tiny pygmy drosera. I hope this helped you.

Hello, Tarek

I planted them 1,5 months ago and the biggest one is making his fourth trap.

The species I planted are :
-D.Allantostigma
-D.Nitidula x Pygmae
-D.Pygmae east Australia
-D.Occidentalis australis "warriup"

All of them are growing now, but my D.Allantostigma is growing a lot quicker then the rest of them.

I am growing them in a tray in the window sill. I'm living Holland (maybe that's interesting for the weather and sun hours etc.)

Greetings, Marlon

Nope i just grow them without covering, so there is some air circulation so mould will get a smaller chance to kill the gemmae, it works for me.

If I get gemmae from my own plants i am going to do some tests to see what works better.

They should be producing gemmae at the end of the year.

My plants are still very young plants, but I heard they should be able to become adult plants in a year and to produce gemmae by then.

If I get gemmae I will tell you, but you never know, I can't promise anything because they are still so young.

Greetings, Marlon

I never spray them, I just keep them in a tray with water so the soil is pretty wet.

Maybe there are some people with other ideas about this?

When the gemmae become plants u shouldn't spray because that is bad for the dew drips, but I don't see a problem when it still are gemmae.

Well the problem is with the seeds if you spray there is I big chance they will get into the soil and that is bad because they need light to germinate.

Yes, it is bad for every drosera to spray them, it will make the dew drips go away, and on long term it can be dangerous for the plants.

Well that's what I know from my own experience, and I learned a lot at the dutch CP forum. They also say that spraying is bad. I almost killed a D.Capensis because I sprayed it, but now I quit spraying it started to live again.

Maybe other people can share their opinion about spraying droseras?
