Subject: Droseras, droseras & more droseras

Hello all!

This message will be all about Droseras, as you may see in the subject!
I've got many questions... I hope you won't get tired with them! I would
appreciate any help you can give about this.
I ordered many seeds of sundews, but I chose them by the name: I only chose
the strange names, those I've never heard about!
Here's the list of seeds I ordered:
Drosera neesii, D. erythrorhiza, D. lanata, D. spilos, D. graniticola, D.
macrophylla, D. cistiflora, D. petiolaris and D. gigantea.

I've already found some pics of D. lanata and D. erythrorhiza, but the rest
remains a mystery to me! Well, I know that D. gigantea is a tuberous
species, but nothing more.
So, please, anyone who knows ANY thing about ANY of these species, please
tell me! "Any thing" includes appearance, culture, how to germinate seed,
size, flowers, photos... well, any info will be the good one!
Can I sow the seeds now, or I must wait till Spring?

And one final question: I have some Drosera madagascariensis seedlings, and
I was told that it is an erect sundew, but my plants are already flowering
and they are almost identical to Drosera intermedia, they are just a
rosette of small leaves. Which type of sundew is this, afterall?

Well, thank you for any help you can give!
Good growing,
