I know everyone has seen sundew seedlings before, but I’m excited to report I see signs of life in my seed bank seedlings! To give a size perspective, the things that look like steel wire are cat hairs that floated into the pot and the cat has very fine hair.

Also, if anyone in the Detroit area is looking for a typical cape sundew, I have several I can give away. I’m nursing a bunch back from a near death experience with aphids. I’d like to let them get a little healthier, then I’ll make a free post. If someone is antsy and wants one now, I’ll give you two in case one croaks.

My adult red cape has two flower stalks, so I can’t wait to send those seeds in to the seed bank. Anything else that flowers in the future will also make seeds for the bank.

Nice, sundew babies are so cute! I've been trying for over a year to get some madagascariensis seeds to germinate, but so far, nada.
