Temperate Drosera seeds need cold stratification treatment to ensure reliable germination.
Mix up a pot or 3 of a good CP mix, like peatmoss and perlite.
Read this article: http://www.growsundews.com/sundews/Germ ... ON_PROCESS
Pick one of these and try it, they all work.
Growsundews dot com is one of the best websites for Drosera information.

well if you are lazy, just keep them moist outside throughout the winter, and they should germinate in spring. It just takes a lot longer than if you put them in your fridge.
