    from my experience of sarr seeds:

    it takes anywhere up to 4 months (can germinate earlier too) for seeds to germinate. I had seeds taht underwent stratification and also ones that I didn't stratify to germinate. But only 10% of all the seeds I used germinated so I am clearly not a sarr grower.

    I have only 2 good looking seedlings. Another one looks like crap somewhere. germinated in the shadows of a capensis forest.

    All but D. aliciae are plants that require a dormancy. Sarracenia seeds need a cold and wet period of few weeks before sowing. All seeds can be sown in moist media, covered, in indirect light - and then ignored for a few weeks.

    But actually one of these seedlings came from a seed that didn't get stratification.

    Drosera binata and aliciae do not need stratification. Just sow them into pots and germinate.
    Gemmae are tiny dormant plants - just plant them and give them the proper growing conditions.

    The Drosera intermedia and Sarracenia seeds should have cold stratification.

    Germination guides can be found here:
