Good afternoon friends.
Last year we got some seeds from Brazil, D. capillaris Bertioga and Itanhaém, and the donor is curious if anyone that got them has had any successful germination?
Let me know so I can pass it on to him.

So far, I've had no success with Itanhaém.

My Perlata germinated, but I only got 2 (I'm cursed with 2 on burmannii seed). Does yours look like the ones in the thread?

Most of them germinated but accidentally lost most to root rot. The remaining, I made sure to feed them early on after developing carnivorous leaves with 15PPM of maxsea due to there strong appetite. They are almost large enough to compare to picture of adult plants.
