So I’m wondering if any of you guys have had germination from the Utricularia Alpina yet. I have ziltch on my end so far.

You've only had them sown for one month today. Patience young Grasshopper.
I've had mine sown for a little over two months with nothing yet. However, the last Utrics I had sown took about three months. I thought they might be duds, but all of the sudden little leaves started popping up all over the pot. Almost as if they germinated, focused on a foundation first, then grew "up".

Very early, could easily be a weed, but I'd have thought a weed would have sprouted long before now.
Time will tell.

Did you get some somewhere else? Because you received the ones from the seed bank on October 17th, three months ago.

More sprouts, and a few of green specks in other spots. However, the specks are too small to show well in a photo. Looking more promising.
This is almost five months after sowing.

I thought I had some alpina sprouts back in December but they turned out to be wild grasses that were mixed in the LFSM. There may be a couple of possible sprouts (tiny green thingies) but they haven't done much.
