I grew these from seed about 2 years ago and they've really done well. This is the second flowering for them, (the 2 littler ones are putting out stalks too.) Seed to maturity took about a year. Drosera in general are fast growers. I had 25-50 seeds but only 3 germinated. They may have been older, any fresh seed I get has an almost 100% germination rate, so maybe that's why. I'm kind of glad about that though, because I'd be giving one to everyone I know to get rid of them if I had 25-50 of this size!
They're growing in a 10 gallon fishtank, 1/2 open glass top, and an 8,000 K aquarium fluorescent bulb for "sun." I was going to bump it up to a 10,000 K as they're a little green still, but they seem happy so I'll wait until the bulb needs replacing again to bother. I didn't even need to add a fan to this tank as it's in a well traveled area, the air exchange is surprisingly fine. It looks a little crazy in there as it is primarily a seedling tank.
