My Humpty Doo was pretty productive last year, but passed on over the winter. I have tried to grow them from seed, and I can get them to sprout, but they don't make it past the seedling stage. I'm going to try one more time, but I think someone else should get a chance at growing some.
I have over 100 seeds that I'll split as evenly as possible to give away to 2 lucky winners, hopefully you'll have better luck.
I'll cover postage to a US address, quick timeframe, drawing on Wednesday.
Standard format,
1. You
2. Not you
3. The other guy
etc.

I'm not entering, but I did read up on this species and found this: "the seedlings only lived for 2 months and then died out. The next time I grew Drosera burmannii from seed, I fed a few of the seedlings, and they took off like crazy." from here: www.growsundews.com/sundews/burmannii.html
Just trying to help out. Good Luck! :D

Well, I said it was going to be quick and drawn on Wednesday. I gotta go cook dinner, so let's do this.
After a completely random drawing, the two winners are numbers 1 and 2!
CONGRATS to sangrocks101 and Nikki630!
PM me your address and I'll get them sent out as soon as possible.
Congratulations to the winners.

Thanks Acro, I'll give it a shot. I've fed baby dews nutritional yeast before, I'll go that route if I get seedlings from this attempt.

I have received addresses from both winners, and both envelopes will go out in today's post, April 16.
Congrats to both, and enjoy!
