Hi Jonathan!

Drosera germination is not so difficult. Sometimes we do some mistakes,
sometimes we do the right way. Therefore, if we follow some simple rules
the germination hapens!
The seeds in germination and the seedlings of drosera need humidity a lot.
One day of humidity lack is enough to the seedling die. Then, take care to
maintain water in a plate under the vase. Never put water on the vase,
because it can bury your seedlings. Some people use to put a piece of
plastic film on the vase, closing it and maintaining the humidity.
I hope had helped you.

Something else, contact me.

Good luck!
