Hmmm. Any thoughts on doing this with Dionaea? o.O
It's quite interesting this method I will like to try it... but it work it for Darlingtonia?

What is needed for propagation outside what kind of success rate can we expect
I am germinating some seed and was curious about the cold stratificiation previous to germination. Can i put hte pot with the sewn seeds int he fridge with a bag over it and forget about it till the 4 weeks have gone by and then put it in the warm 24/7 light conditions? I have never germed my own sar's before
Hope this helps a bit
Aaron Ellison's paper Interspecific and intraspecific variation in seed size and germination requirements of Sarracenia (Sarraceniaceae) Am. J. Bot. March 2001 vol. 88 no. 3 429-437 gives the optimal stratification times as:
2 weeks - S. alata, S. psittacina
2-4 weeks - S. leucophylla
4 weeks - S. flava, S. minor, S. rubra ssp. rubra, S. jonesii
4-6 weeks - S. purpurea ssp purpurea, S. purpurea ssp. venosa
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
huh, thats really interesting. 2 weeks is so short! I've always heard on the 4-6 week range. Based on the table, it's clearly dependant on where they live, which makes a lot of sense seeing that Newfoundland would definitely expect a colder/longer winter than Georgia or Florida. Thanks NaN, I'll definitely try and use those time periods this year to see how much success they bring!
Hi, I use 2 weeks with flava and alata and I have a very good rate of germination.
I will use this table
Thanks for the info
