Looks like very soon lol. Careful though, they're projectiles.

Something I did that actually eliminates the guesswork is I made a "vaccuum" by punching a couple holes in the lidf of a small glass jar (like a baby food jar or something) and put a couple straws in. One aimed at the crown. I don't know about others but I didn't like the idea of fishing out tiny green specks so I eliminated the middle man and lined the inner wall with a damp paper towel (I used a small jar) When it flew through the straw it hit the damp towel and stayed there. Not only does it preserve them but I pulled out all of them in one go. The damp paper towel catch was one of my better ideas. Kept them in the jar until I was ready to plant them.

Another option is popping them off with forceps (I did that with some more stubborn ones) Good luck!

The ones in the very outside on the first pic look about ready, wait a bit more and you'll have some little bombs flying all over the place.

Carnies, I PM’d you. Or is it DM’d ?
Either way, let me know by 00:00 Monday Eastern time, or I will open up a giveaway. I harvested 15 or so of the gemmae from the Drosera paleacea.
