Do you do this with fresh out of the plant seeds as well? My sarr will hopefully produce seeds and I was just going to sow them.SundewWolf wrote:I’ve never tried darlingtonia seeds, but I treat my Sarracenia seeds like any other seeds: put them in some small amount of moistened peat moss in a bag in the fridge for 3 weeks, then I put them in a pot of peat/perlite (seeds seems to fall down too much for my liking in sphagnum) and I keep the small pot standing in a shallow water dish at all times until the seedlings sprout. Then I let the tray dry out a bit but refill it with water so they stand in it for most of the week. They are under my grow lights (on a pretty standard photoperiod 8am-5pm) until they are a few months old and can go outside.

Do you think I could sow them and them cover the pot and put it outside for the winter? I'm afraid if I put them in the fridge that they'll disappear . Otherwise, how do you store them over winter?Copper2 wrote:Sarracenia need a winter to sprout. They will have poor germination if sprouted fresh. I stratified Darlingtonia for 4 weeks in the fridge on the FTS peat mix. They just sprouted- I am not sure how long they took, but I might be able to find out. I didn’t put them under particularly bright light

No but I wish I did. Those are some seriously neat plants. I'd name it mr. MustacheCopper2 wrote:You could probably stratify them outside. Just pretend the empty pot is filled with sarrs????
Do you have the Darlingtonia seeds?
