It's been a month since I received the seeds from the seed bank and here is an update on their growth!

Has anyone ever grown Mixed Drosera or Mystery Dew? I wonder what kind it will be when it grows up
and for D. regia "extra" I don't know if I was wrong in growing it, but I didn't see any seeds sprouting.

The Mixed Drosera contains eight spats, three capis, ultra x spat, a natalensis, a tropical intermedia, and Cape "Large Form". The Cape will be easy to ID once it grows out a bit, the rest may take a little detective work.
The Mystery Dew is simply a rosetted type that lost its label. More detective work.

Not sure if I did something wrong or what but mine seem to have just stopped growing. They turned red and were starting to get dew and then just stopped. It's been a couple months now. I will gr pics when the lights come back on.

At that stage, they all look alike. A spat looks like a capensis, but also looks like a capillaris, venusta, intermedia, burmannii, or just about any other sundew, even a regia. It needs to grow up some to be sure. If you only sowed regia seed in that pot, then that's likely what it is.

Yes, that's the (only) one I saw. But, as young as it is there could be more coming. ;)

Oh, and I thought I'd add that it looks like you got a great germination on the others!

I had a lot of luck with the seed bank regia, with dozens of seeds germinating after 3-4 weeks. I didn't do anything special, just kept the peat moist and the pot bagged.
