    Thank you Finch.
    Shall I mix it 2:1 two parts sand, garden soil?

    What do you ppl think about my idea of puttign them intot he chilly garage for the winter?
    I have heard all 3 need to be stratisfied to germinate.
    Is thsi true?

    Um i dont know how cold it gets in its nativehabitat but not too cold for umbrella. I think this should be kept on the same watering regime as pigmy sundews...the other 2 are quite hardy and adapt to a range of growing condidtons.

    If you get it to germinate heres the natural form u should try to mimic.


    Here it is sprouting from ruins near a villa. If u prune them dont prune the side to much because if u do it will end up looling like a pole with a little green on top. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    that makes no logic

    Compost is not garden soil. Soil is composed of humus, sand, clay and stones, gravel etc. Compost is pure humus (decayed organic matter).

    I would plant them in a somewhat sandy, acidic soil. Most pines, firs, spruces prefer this. I would also seriously listen to what Scott says in his post. He knows what he's talking about. Plant your spruce/fir seeds now and they most likely will not germinate as they need a long stratification period. They also will not live indoors for any prolonged period of time.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    O.K, shall I put the pots outside then?

    Hey, I read in a Bonsai book that putting the seeds int he fridge for 6 weeks will stratisfy them.
    Will this work?
