Never mind about the burmanni pics!
I forgot I have a super macro lens for my phone camera.
Here is a picture taken with this lens and cropped.
Those of you who have sprouted D. burmanni before will know how hard it was to get this picture, and will appreciate how tiny this seedling is. The potting medium in the background is a mix of LFS, peat, and perlite.
Those little bits of vegetative matter in the background is peat moss.
That's how small the seedling is.
It is DWARFED by the pieces of peat moss.
When I planted the seeds, the packet looked EMPTY!
D. burmanni is a nice plant, and I only got 30 seeds from CA Carnivores.

I hope you appreciate how tricky this picture was to get...

They were so easy to sprout.
Just room temps, peat/perlite/LFS mix (I was feeling special so I added LFS), distilled water, and light!

Just stick it in a plastic bag under fluroescents an VOILA! You have D. burmanni!

YAY! My order of Drosera indica seeds from the ICPS came today.
It came really fast, I ordered them 4 days ago!
Apparently, I ordered the day the shipments were going out...

I can't wait to see these guys grow..

Junior year of high school has lead me to forget about some of my plants, leading to their deaths, including one N. attenboroughii seedling... I'm going to try to put some more time into them when I can...
