Tropical, temperate sundews sowed together

by Drone232 » Fri Mar 13, 2015 1:03 pm

I accidentally did this. I have nothing against my sundews clumping, so I have gotten into the habit of just sowing around 50 seeds in the same container at a time. I recently purchased my first ever temperate sundew seeds (Drosera Rotundifolia) and only later realized that sowing them with Drosera Burmannii a few days ago was not a good idea. I was used to sowing tropicals together and forgot that these two would not mix come winter. I will have separate them by the time fall comesso it is not a complete or utter disaster. Just a great annoyance. Luckily, I think they'll look quite different from each other by then to be able to separate them accurately.

Did you stratify your D. Rotundifolia seeds?

I left the Drosera rotundifolia seeds outside on wet sphagnum for the month of Febuary. There were ten seeds and because the container was large and I knew that would be extra room, I added 30 Drosera burmannii seeds as soon as spring sprung. Nothing has germinated yet besides grass, but such was the same for when I first started gowing sundews from seeds half a year ago. Grass sprouts first and then as the weeks pass by the sundews will begin popping up.
