I like playing this game called "sew a variety pack of seeds and see what comes up" I usually do this with vegetables, but I figured I'd try it with our favorite hungry little plants! I do not know what species were in the bag, but there were 50+ seeds, all cross pollinated from a popular carnivorous plant nursery. The sprouting has begun so I figured I'd start posting. The prize? Internet bragging rights! *If* there is something interesting in the mix *and* I can successfully propagate it, winners may get a plant or seeds in the mail. That is a big *IF* so bragging rights is all I can promise for now.

Entry #1
Please note: images through the loupe are at 60x and are limited in focus because I have a tremor. As these plants develop I will update them appropriately.ImageImageImage

That's all I see small roots on for now. As a wise man on the internet once said "looking at plants makes you feel less homicidal" and after work today, I can say that's definitely the case. I'll keep updating as more plants spring up. I have 3 more similar seed packs on the way, so be looking forwards to that too.

Update- the good, and the bad.
Bad news first. I spilled that tray of seeds while rearranging.
Good news! I got a east coast style bog for plants that require dormancy. With that order were 3 more assorted seed packs. I sowed each pack in a different container. Let the games commence!Image

Almost certainly. I also expect some capensis, and S. Purpurea.

Seed leaves are out! This is the only one big enough to get on my cell phone. It looks like I might have a drosera patch or two coming up, or it could be the tips of sphag. So small. Anyway here's the bigger one that's definitely a dicot. Image
