    I would love to try seeds. I had a few seeds last year from a Scarlet Belle hybrid planted in pots with peat/LFS and the raccoons got into the pond and knocked the pots into the pond...I was sick. That was my only experience with sarrs seeds, but I did get several Darlingtonia seedlings this year in LFS I left outside all winter.

    I am fortunate to live where nature does the stratification for me. I want to try some sarr seeds in my bog garden (which the raccoons do not bother).

    The bog is a mix of peat/sand/perlite, 8' x10', 18" to 24" deep, 10 hours of direct sun in summer.

    I'd absolutely love to try too!

    1) I fill 2" pots with 1:1 peat mosserlite
    2) I soak seeds in a small dish of dH2O with a touch (TOUCH) of dish detergent, in the refrigerator overnight.
    3) I put the pot in a dish of water until the media is moist.
    4) I strain the water out of the dish containing the seeds and spread the seeds onto the soil
    5) I spray the pots down with a water/sulfur solution.
    6) I place the pots in a ziploc bag with dH2O in the refrigeratoir for two weeks.
    7) I remove the bags from the pots and place them under lights.
