So, I went and met the other grower in my area this morning, and got very extited about all the plants the had. He also gave me a couple of new sundews so I decided to make an update. Here goes.

I know... those were the fist seeds I ever planted. I can't really do much until the seedlings get bigger though.

It appears that cinnamon is only effective against dry molds. The "cassia" cinnamon commonly available in the United States seems to have some anti-fungal effects. Whether or not "true" cinnamon is more or less effective remains to be seen. Your "slime" is probably Nostoc - algae/cyanobacteria.

I've never had a problem with algae and seedlings other than looking yucky. Many cyanobacteria are nitrogen fixing so long term they may not be all that good for the plants. Short term they may even benefit the seedlings by providing some nutrition. Sarracenia seedlings benefit from some fertilizer - I can't say if the same holds true for Drosera.

Yes, just repot or if you're not concerned with tossing out any babies with the bath water just scoop off most of the slime and a layer of the substrate when the plants are bigger.

Everything seems to be multiplying and growing well. But the site of that algae gives me the willies!
