Carnivorous Plants/D Nidiformis seeds


I recently came into these seeds.
By accident I covered the media with pure water and let the pot drain into a tray.
I think I lost all the seeds due to the flood
One day I was looking in the pot and I think I see a sprout which means maybe a seed survived!
However is does not seem to be growing or its growing slowly
Do theses Sundew seeds generally grow slowly?

Hello Dennis

Each seed have a different genetic, with different morphologic caracteristics.

So yes, some seedlings grow slower. The most important is the color. If the seedling stay greenish, and the growing is constant, then dont worry.

Hope this help !
