    just sow them on top of the soil no need to fridge them to simulate winter and then spring, I didn't stratify my seeds and I have flytrap seedlings now. they are alot tougher than you think and no need to feed the tiny vft's once they germinate, germination can take several months.
    and also the plants take like 5 years to mature from seed.

    or do that, a few seeds you said you just recieved a few seeds how much is a few?
    My aunt paid like 7$ plus shipping for some flytrap seeds and the packet said it contained four to five seeds.
    one flower stalk on a flytrap produces like 8 flowers and each produces hundreds of seed so to only put 4-5 in a pack is just ripping people off.

    Thanks guys,

    I will use your advice and get this thing started...

    I live in Michigan so I will plan on having the plan indoors most of the time

    Do you think I would need any special lights because of this?
