id say just pull out that grass and toss it. I'm not sure those are venus fly trap seeds either. fly trap seeds are not round like that. that looks like hemp seeds. imho fly trap store - this site - has viable venus fly trap seeds at fair prices. and you can even buy a whole pot of baby fly traps and its easier than starting from seeds.

i bought the see from my local online shopping website,here is a close up pic of the seeds for your inspection.So what can i do about it?Or should i wait a while and see whether the seeds are vft or not?And my last question,do flytrapcare do international shiping for the seeds or vft?

I agree. Those look too round to be flytrap seeds.

yeah I'm gonna say those are not fly trap seeds. unfortunately this is a common problem for folks when not purchasing from a private grower or a reputable nursery that sells carnivorous plants

No, they will become unhealthy and eventually die without a dormancy. In the tropics, a refrigerator can be used for dormancy.

Well, let's not jump to conclusions...they could also be puffed wheat :lol:
