    OK, so is it normal for Sarracenia seeds to germinate less than a week after they are sowed? I stratified my S.alata Covington,LA seeds for 6 weeks wrapped in a moist paper towel in the fridge. I then planted them less than a week ago, and already, about half of the seeds have germinated. Is this normal or not?

    13 days is nothing unusual. It's about the earliest seeds will germinate, with most taking 15-30 days.

    Sorry, I misread your post!

    That is very early and I never get them going within 6 days! Alata grows in some of the warmest areas and might be raring to go after such a cold length of time.
