Welcome to the forum and to the hobby! I assume you know the basics of growing carnivorous plants? Want to make sure you get it right the first time!

You're also eligible for a bonus if you'd like.
Mixed Rosettes is offered as a bonus, would you like to change your third choice to something like tokaiensis? And make the Rosettes a bonus?

Order received.
Your order number is 1122.
I'll PM you shortly with info for sending postage.
Thank you for your order.

Please provide me, in a response to my PM, your name and exact mailing address.

Reminder: With international requests, there is a chance the seeds may never arrive due to a number of factors. This is beyond my control, but I will do my best.
Thank you.

Happy growing,
Chef

I honestly havent read up much on it! I am quite an impatient person and was planning to plant first and ask questions later :)

Yeah sure! Rosettes as a bonus and third choice tokaiensis sounds good :)

Make sure to read about them before doing anything with your seeds. Carnivorous plants (CPs) have very particular needs. Lots of light - 6 hours minimum of direct sun, low PPM water - distilled, reverse-osmosis, or rain, low PPM soil - Sphagnum moss, peat moss/perlite (no added fertilizers) to name some, and there are some other things too. CPs are just very picky about everything and one mistake can kill everything

Hmmm... 6 hours of direct sun might be hard to get, especially during the autumn/winter here in Sweden. Do you reckon grow lights could work and if so how many lumens should i need? Thanks for all the advice :)

Yes, grow lights can be used. I'm not sure now many lumens, but I think yescom 225's are good. I don't know if you can get those in Sweden though. You can make a post about it in a new thread or try to find an existing thread.

With the ones you've chosen, a bright windowsill that receives a couple hours of direct sunlight a day would probably be sufficient. Maybe a supplement with the grow light until they grow out of the seedling stage, but not much else other than keep them above about 50°F (10°C) for better results. Warmer, for germination, about 70°F (20°C).

So, I can just put the seeds directly into my growing growing media (live sphag)?

I wouldn't suggest starting the seedlings in live sphagnum. The moss will grow faster than the seedlings and choke them out. Peat/perlite with a layer of chopped sphagnum on top is my go to mixture. I have an alba capensis growing in live sphagnum, and it is having a hard time keeping up.
