Hi you all Drosera specialists!

I have successfully got my _Drosera indica_ seeds to germinate. The BIG
question is now how to get them grow ? They have been growing with no good
success in 60-70 % humidity, peat pot, water level in the peat level.
Sun light and artificial light mixt. No growing. they are 3-4 mm "high".

What is wrong? Water level? Peat? What is the natural growing habitat?

My _Nepenthes ampullaria_ has made succesfully new pitchers. NOTE
this plant is growing in normal inhouse temp, 40% humidity. 16 Watt
artificial light and now in the evening sun.
Under the same conditions I have flowering _Utricularia sandersonii_,
_U. calycifida_ and _Genlisea hispidula_ .

Good growing and waiting for _D. indica_ tips !
