I'm almost sure you goolged Drosera aliciae already. So basically go with what they say in those websites.
I just want to just add that Drosera seedlings are usually very small, So.... 1. Do not check them every day, you will go nuts.
2. On the other hand, protect them by putting a humidity dome over the Pot, I use domes from Slurpee to Starbucks domes, etc. or just cut off the bottom of a Plastic Coke 1L bottle.
3. Use a Mister to mist the potting mix (I use coco coir/cocopeat). Or if you can't do it daily then put your pot under a water tray, and just make sure that the water tray has water from time to time, and make sure that the surface of your potting mix does not go dry.
I currently have a "Surprise" drosera in my collection, it was a surprise to me, coz I found it under a Nepenthes plant that I repotted 3 months ago. I never noticed it until I saw the flower stalk. I am still not sure what species it is, however it is one of the Spatulata looking droseras like D. Aliciae.
Okay I give in, let me give you a rough figure: Germination might take 2 to 4 weeks, or longer or not at all depending on freshness of your seeds. They grow to 2cm maybe in 2 to 3 months, depending on conditions and maybe if they are catching food naturally.
Good luck and please update us if your droseras have germinated.
One last suggestion, I found that most droseras really do not want to be rained on or watered on top, that is why I'd strongly recommend a Humidity dome, It will not only retain humidity, it will also prevent your drosera from being washed with water, they hate that. But also let some air in too, so that some insect will find their traps occasionally.

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
