How long can VFT seeds take to germinate

by xr280xr » Fri Apr 19, 2013 6:08 pm

I bought some DuneCraft seeds from Michaels craft store, of all places, that are "guaranteed to grow" and they've been covered on a heating mat for probably about 6 weeks now. Their packaging says to wait 1-3 months. I know fresh seeds are supposed to germinate in anywhere from 13 days to 5 weeks depending on conditions. But how long do you have to wait until you know your seed is a dud? I want to try to hold them to their guarantee if they don't grow.

Here's a link: http://www.dunecraft.com/products/flytrapegg.htm
Yes...I'm an adult and I bought that :lol:

Flytrap seed? Or Sarracenia seed? Flytrap seed should germinate within 3 weeks on a heat mat with high humidity. If there is no germination after 4 weeks, it's unlikely to happen.

Heres a tip NEVER get any carnivorous plant seeds from dunecraft. You have like a 10% percent chance of them growing. Trust me I have tries many times.

My first ever cp encounter was a duane cradft kit. It was about weird plants, and the first thing to grow for me were sarracenia seeds.

They will honor the guaranteed to grow thing, I've held them to it. In 4 batches of VFT seeds from them, I've gotten ONE to germinate, after it was soaked in distilled water for 24 hours before sowing. My FTS seeds however, have had almost a 100% germination rate, still waiting on a couple from the last batch I bought a couple weeks ago. That's out of 55 seeds.
