Can anyone tell me are those seeds viable Venus Flytrap seeds ?

I know that the shape of Venus Flytrap seed is like a tear, but I can't really tell that those are tear shape or am I wrong ?

Any advice will be helpful, thanks.

Where did you source the seeds from? That would be the first clue I'd consider!

Looking at the photo, it is hard to say for sure, but I'm about 90% certain that those are NOT Venus flytrap seeds. Again, the source of the seeds might be a better indicator than trying to guess based on the shape of the seeds themselves.

I found the seller via a local internet shop, he says that he is growing from those seeds a couple of years now, but I am not falling on that just from that picture he send me, so I will look at the case a bit more so I can be sure, but from your saying that those seeds are not genuine it's not going great.

That doesn't sound truthful. Venus flytraps are very challenging and very slow to grow from seed.
