D. Filiformis Germination Question

by cp junkie » Sat Nov 12, 2011 2:21 am

Do filiformis seeds need cold stratification?

I already sowed them and put them on a bright windowsill. The other drosera species have already germinated but none of the filiformis did. Is it okay if I put them in the fridge to break the dormancy when they've been exposed to light for over a week already?

Yes, they need stratification.
I did that and got decent germination from it.

So I can still put them inside the fridge even though they've already been exposed to light and warm conditions? How long should I keep them there?

Well, there's no point just ;eaving them is there?
I'm not sure if it will work, but it's worth a try! About four weeks should do for these.
