Dantt99, drosera intermedia liked to be bathed in water, I would suggest very high humidity, with plenty of breathing room (either fan it out every day, or give the dome or whatever is used to achieve humidity be large) I think water 3/4s up the way of the pot would be very beneficial. I think most peoples issue with germinating drosera probably goes in the categories of using peat moss instead of the superior LFSM or a layer of silica sand (silica sand isn't that important but is always good) plenty, plenty, plenty of water for the first few weeks of germination, consisting of water most of the way up the pot.
Patience! Patience is super important to seeds germinating.
You also might want to keep them away from large temperature fluctuations, and direct sunlight is also a large killer.
A slight temperature drop at night is beneficial, and always make sure to give them plenty of light.
Looking for any drosera capensis via seed, pm me!
I'm interested in any sundews.
