I'm absolutely 100% positive I've read that they need strat before and never once heard they didn't until now and every other carnivore they grow alongside in the wild needs strat, but you're right, it appears that's the case. My bad, I have no idea why I thought that then. Carry on lol. I'll add though I've had luck with sterilization by just boiling a pot of water and pouring it over the peat. You'll just want to do it outside since it doesn't smell great.Another one of those definite maybes surrounding Venus Flytraps. I think the current concensus is that fresh seeds do not need stratification but that it is helpful with older seeds. As far as the plants they from alongside of, those that flower in spring, filiformis and capillaris for example, don't need to be stratified. Those that set seed in fall, like flava and intermedia, due. Since flytraps set seet in early summer, it is likely that they do not "need" stratification, but it helps.
