Another attempt with Drosophyllum seed! Great thanks to partisangardener for the kindness! Sorry for the delay, I have been super busy previously so I haven't had time to try the seeds until now. Placed the seed in h2o2 + water for 24 hours, and then using a craft knife to cut away the tip carefully. Sown the seed on moss a week ago, and today there is life!

I hope they will pull through. You will have to put some artificial light over them in the dark time of the year, because they are still very small by then. I started a new attempt in May with some seed from two places in Portugal. They grow better when they start early in the year. I never had better ones. Keep them wet all the time and give them enough light. They are descendants of survivors. The pot I still have with the three year old plants is again in flower. The third time this year. At some days I had to water it twice a day.
I found out by accident. But Mike has longer experience. A pity that Photo bucket has taken all users as hostage. The pictures were impressive. All this crapp about the difficult cultivation is now past. Big pot, always in a tray with water and they grow like weed. Rain, slight frost, no problem at all.
