> I would like to make more little Drosera...

I haven't tried the leaf cuttings that others have suggested, but
I have found seed very easy. Maybe I only grow *easy* Drosera, so
far capensis, aliciae, spathulata, rotundifolia, and peltata from
my own collected seed, plus some others from purchased seed.
Also propagated binata just by ripping the clump apart and planting
the crowns separately.

Just thought - someone mentioned Byblis liniflora. It does seem a
bit erratic in germination, and the young plants are slow. My own
collected seed seems to germinate fairly well, but I have only just
had my first flowers this year, and it is November. The plants will
probably die soon (can they be kept alive for more than one year if
kept warm?), so I might not get any seed this year.
