Does anyone have experience in what drosera erythrorhiza seeds look like? I got some off of eBay and just want to make sure they are legit. Thanks!Image

Honestly they look much too large to be Drosera seeds.

I will say that packaging and the quantity of seeds looks very suspicious to me. Where did the seeds come from?

I grow the real D. erythrorhiza (not squamosa) and those don’t look like seeds. Somewhat difficult to bloom and very difficult to get viable seed, and on top of that it’s pretty rare everywhere.
