    Why didn't you do a search? That's the real question. Laziness? I thought so.

    I typed in "Germinating Sarracenia Seed" into google.com. It says it took .28 seconds to get the results. The FIRST result answers your question. It took you longer to type your post than it did me to find a website with detailed instructions. At the very least you could have asked something about a specific method instead of just "how".....I understand there's a first time for everything but you didn't even try.

    Everybody has their own method. Some wrap in moist paper towel and pu in the fridge. Some apply fungicide and some do not. I place in centrifuge tubes of water, sealed, and in a cold environment - like the butter keeper or a bucket of cold water, in the attic. Do this for ~6 weeks and then attempt germination on moist media.

    Should've been written as:

    There are lots of info on the net about this topic, next time you can try searching for it. Sometimes it's hard to figure out the keywords for certain topics but "germinating sarracenia seed" sounds like a good start. Here, I ran a search out of the kindness of my heart, http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...Sarracenia.htm

    I find that more and more, regular posters are starting to jump down people's throats for absolutely nothing. I'd watch the way we speak guys, we're not being very welcoming...something to think about...

    I'm VERY welcoming. I love newbs! I just can't find an excuse to not run a simple search. There is a plethora of information on this topic, and variations of techniques, out there (and on here) to read. It's easy to rely on the wisdom of others without giving any effort at all into the pursuit of that wisdom.

    Being a newb and being lazy are totally different things.

    But honestly can you tell me that your reply didn't make the poster look like a complete fool in everyone's eyes? When in actuality, the person is just trying to learn by asking, questions, no matter how many times they've been asked, never hurt anyone.

    There's no nice way for me to answer that question Harsh or not, my reply was the truth and you can't tell me he wasn't being lazy and looking for a quick fix with no research involved. Why should anyone bother to search at all when we could just make a new thread? It's out of respect for everyone else on the forum. Even asking something a little extra like "any tips or tricks for my first time?" would have been fine, but a flat out "how"?

    Look at it like this. Why ask a question if the SAME question has been asked 100 other times and all of the answers are the same? It's like asking "What's five times five?" Go the extra mile and elaborate on what you're doing or ask for personal experiences. That's rich discussion. Asking "how" is a bit empty.
