Well it has been fun getting my little Drosera capensis from seed to flower.

Planted first set of successful seeds on 2nd October 2013.

Germinated on 25th October 2013.

First true leaves 5th November 2013.

First flower spike seen 28th June 2014.

Now between the sowing of the seeds and the flower I had fungal problems, mishap with environmental change and fungus gnats but I have now some very healthy and strong plants. Now thanks to a kind member on the site I have more than enough seeds to fill my house a hundred times over with Drosera.

Things I will be trying in the coming months and in the new growing season:

Leaf Cuttings.

Different types of growing media.

A large scale Drosera setup.

Wild moss types as surface cover.

All in good time but hope to have some on the go very soon.
