I got a free flytrap from the pet store! It's looking really rough but the rhizome is good so I think it's salvageable.

Also trying my first flower stalk cutting, from the same plant.

We're entering outdoor growing season in Milwaukee.
I moved out a couple more flats of Dews.
The rest of them will come outside one or two pots at a time.

I also had a dozen test tubes full of germinated seeds from my continuing Water Germination project.
I mixed up some media and topped it off with 1/8 inch of pool filter sand as topdressing in each pot.
That White pool filter sand really makes the sprouted seeds stand out, very easily visible.

Species that germinated and got planted included:

Drosera burmannii "Green Giant"
Drosera burmannii "Humpty Doo"
Drosera capensis "Giant" "R Seine Zimbabwe"
Drosera capensis "Giant" "Steve Marley"
Drosera capensis "Gifberg Pass RSA"
Drosera capensis "Rubra"
Drosera capensis "Vogelgat Nature Preserve RSA"
Drosera finlaysoniana
Drosera hartmeyerorum
Drosera indica and Drosera burmannii "Binh Chau Forest" Vietnam
Drosera serpens
Drosera spatulata var gympiensis

I didn't do anything yet! Although my flytrap flower stalk cutting babies are almost ready to be fed for their first time!
