    Just wondering the best way to germinate VFT seeds in an outdoor in-ground bog garden.......

    Don't want the birds and insects eating them, wind blowing them away, rain washing them away, etc, etc, etc.

    I thought about a light, thin layer of hay, but would like any thoughts on that.......

    I may use aquarium gravel as a topping and was wondering if a thin layer of that would do the trick.

    Way too many too germinate inside and then transplant outside.........

    Any Thoughts, Tips, Pointers are Appreciated!!

    Thanx!

    hmmm...
    i suggest buying VFT bulbs instead of seed because its a long process with seed, and can be difficult to raise outside, and if u go with bulbs, u can propagate before planting to get more plants, and they will clump on their own when they grow.

    The seeds are already purchased, and I understand the length of raising them for the first 2-3 of years.

    Not a "Big Project" for me---just something I am going to do.......

    Just looking for info on the best way to make it happen......

    Thanx!

    After a recent trip to the Hosford site in FL., where VFT go wild, I would suggest getting LFS to grow or dried shredded LFS as a top cover. At Hosford, they were coming up by the 1000s in the live spaghnum moss. It was quite a sight. (sorry no pics)

    One more point, get the LFS to grow outdoors under full sun. Getting sphagnum to grow indoors is a killer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    That must've been quite a sight. *Drool* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
