    Thank you for sharing the site with us. I recognize a couple of names from the forum part. This will be especially useful since I am attemting to germinate / propogate 3 species of tuberous sundews.

    Did you hot stratify it for at least 6 weeks? And by hot i mean hot...like 85. If you did and its still not working, the seeds are either not viable or aren't wet enough

    I don't know about keeping them warm for six weeks. I do know that tuberous sundew will take around 12 weeks to germinate and some species will need smoke water, like D. erythrorhiza. (these plants need a good fire to set and germinate seeds in the wild)
    Interesting thing about peltata I seen this species growing happily in a pot of Nepenthes for several years. Alway went dormant in spring and returned in early autumn.

    Do you think the seeds need the heat of the fire to scarify the outer testa or is it the minerals in the ash left behind by the fire that are useful?

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    It is believed what germinating the seeds is chemicals released in the smoke itself. Fire seems to clear areas of overgrowth where the sundews are growing and this is what set erythrorhiza, zonaria and other species to flower.
