Seeds from Triffis Nurseries

by Darkrai283 » Sat Sep 24, 2011 11:27 am

Some seeds from Triffid Nurseries arrived yesterday and sowed them yesterday night.

The seeds I ordered were: D.capensis, D.burmannii, D.binata 'T-form', and Darlingtonia but they had run out of D.binata seeds so I got D.Capensis 'red' seeds for it. :(
The capensis was meant to have around 100 seeds but I think there were around 500! And the darlingtonia was meant to have 30-50 but I think I got around 100. But the number of the D.capensis 'red' and the D.burmannii disappointed me. There were only around 5 seeds each!

So here are the pics.

On the pics with the yes and no for the darlingtonia seeds, I didnt stratify the seeds with the 'no'. And for the one in the 'yes', I mixed water and 2 drops of washing up liquid in a container with the seeds in and left them in the fridge overnight and sowed them this morning. I read somewhere that this person does that with his darlingtonia seeds and has success every time so I thought I might do that instead of cold stratifying in the fridge for 4 weeks.

Good luck with them! I've bought seeds from Triffid Nurseries in the past and was somewhat disappointed too; their plants are amazing quality though!
