I ordered some Drosera seeds from 
Silverhill but so far they haven't germinated. Drosera is a geophyte. Does 
anyone on this list grow it?

Hi Mary Sue:
I grow several Drosera sp. in an old fish tank along with D. capensis. D. 
capensis willingly selfsows.  The "soil" mix is milled sphagnum moss, sand and 
horticultural charcoal over a layer of gravel.  They are a favorite of the young 
"budding botanists" that visit and it takes no more than a minute to pot one 
up (in a plastic cup with a clear cup taped to to the top to act as a 
terrarium) and send them home with it.
