Just wanted to share what I have ordered for seeds. They should mostly be here in the next week or so. I may be going insane with this whole carnivorous plant addiction. When is the next intervention?

As far as I know, I should be able to just sow them all as received. Would I be nuts to try and plant them in individual cells?

Any tricks, tips, or other words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Dionaea:
-Typical OP - Approx. 270

Sarracenia:
-Purpurea - 150 (already stratified)

Drosera:
-Burmannii - 50+
-Capensis “Wideleaf” - 50+
-Hercules x self - 50+
-Intermedia “Cuba” - 50+
-Spatulata “White flower” - 30-75+
-Tokaiensis - 30-75+
-Natalensis - 30-75+

Requested from Seedbank (sounds like a couple weeks out):
-D.Finlaysoniana - 28
-Bonus mixed capes - bulk

Thanks,
Brian

Just a few bits of advice:
If you start them outside, put then in a sheltered area. I've had heavy thunderstorms blast the seeds from one pot to another, making positive ID of similar species impossible.
Put your seedpots in a squirrel-proof cage. TreeRats like to dig into fresh peatmoss and sphagnum moss burying peanuts and sunflower seeds raided from local birdfeeders. Again, you'll see random seeds tossed from pot to pot.
These days, I'll plant 50% of a seed packet and store the leftovers in the fridge for insurance.
Just my 02¢ worth.
