About 6 weeks ago I sprinkled a few packets of 2018 sundew seeds over some peat mix. This type grew.

They have stayed about the same size (tiny) for three or four weeks. Any idea what they are? How long before they do something more interesting?

Conditions: FTS peat mix, boiled filtered rainwater, morning direct sun, temps 70-90F.

I had five or six types in my fridge for two years—and threw them all into the same pot. I didn't expect any to grow, really.

I'm assuming that only one type survived, but if they are hard to identify at this age maybe there's a mix.

All of my filiformis, brevifolia, and capensis look like that. The one thing you might conclude is that it is a green variety of whatever they are.
