    I have the same question. Has anyone tried this with Darlingtonia? Would love to know your experience.

    I'd spray them with some sort of fungicide so they dont mold but your method would definitely work.

    Yup, watch the moisture buildup. And you may wanna wait a bit longer, I've gotten my best germination rates from 6 weeks of stratification rather than 4. I wait until after stratification to sow however. I place them with some chopped live sphagnum in a ziploc and then refrigerate that. Saves some room that way. Or you could wrap them in damp paper towels, or peat, or dead chopped LFS, etc. The ICPS guide to Sarr Seed Propogation is super helpful and can be found right here... http://www.carnivorousplants.org/how...aceniaSeed.php

    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

    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!

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing your feedback.

    I would still love to know if this works with Darlingtonia. Has anyone tried with Darlingtonia?

    I listen that: If the darlingtonia seeds are very fresh, they dont need stratification.
    If they arent freshly, need a cold stratification.
    I havent got germination of darlingtonia ! jaja
    regards
