Drosera regia - considering this was supposed to be "chaff" and I didn't see any actual seeds in the packet, I was very surprised to see some germinated.

Drosera filiformis - not sure what the lanky plant in the corner is but otherwise very good germination rate after stratifying for 5 weeks.

The donation was the leftovers after the largest seeds had been removed and donated as individual seed packets.
I figured there were viable seeds left in there but it was too much work to separate good stuff from the chaff
I'm glad you got some good results.
Congratulations!

That's just grass. Pull it now while it's easy.

So is this reserved for just "seed bank" seeds or can we post pics of seedlings/plants from seed of other users? I have some seedlings popping up from ALL of the seeds I purchased from @Panman.

Here's a few pics of some Mixed Drosera I got from the seed bank. Odd that they have stayed like this for a few weeks now without much else happening with them.
