just letting you know, drosera binata are one of the easiest, if not the easiest cp to grow. so it's hard to mess up. some tips though: use only distilled water, use only cp soil, try giving about 3 hours of light a day. you can use condement cups with the lids to grow them

Thanks for the tip! I have some germinated VFT that's brought as seeds a month ago, and I think the cares for Drosera is basicaly the same as VFT, except with higher humidity requirements. I was planning to give it about 14 hours of bright indirect sunlights and flourescent lights everyday just as I did to VFT seeds. If 3 hours is the requirement, I'm glad to know that.

Then there's me. I grew some of these Binatas from these seeds. I germinated them inside over the Winter, and put them outside in the Spring when it warmed up. Good, direct morning sunlight, about 5 hours worth. Indirect light/shade the rest of the day.
They grew pretty good, but I gave them to Drummer230 in a trade, so I don't know how well they're doing now. However, having seen his setup, I'll lay money down that they're doing very well.

Order received.
Your order number is 0193.
I'll PM you shortly with a mailing address for your SASE.
Thank you for your order.

For Sarracenia or Dionaea seeds, I strongly suggest you use a 70 cent non-machinable stamp on your return envelope. (The inside one) For Drosera, Pinguicula, and Utricularia seeds, the extra postage is not necessary.
If you can't find a non-machinable stamp, I suggest a forever stamp plus a 15 cent stamp or two regular forever stamps on your return envelope.
The USPS machinery loves to crush those seeds. 

Reminder to all:
Please remember return address on all envelopes.
Please remember to write your Forum username and order number somewhere on the envelope or in a note.
I don't have access to a cross reference of real-world names linked to usernames.
Remembering these things helps me fill orders quicker.
Thank you.

Happy growing,
