I got prematurely excited when I spotted some teeny green plants in the germination pots. Turns out they're probably invasive star moss, no evidence of spatulate leaves (yet). Starting to think the seeds may not be viable.

Mine died for no reason, it was about 3 inches tall and hadn't had the chance to take over the whole grow space. It was looking so healthy, green, dewy, etc. And then it just suddenly collapsed. It's been months now and I think it came back from the roots, now there's two tiny sundews in the pot.
