    fungicide for stratification of sarracenia seed?

    Hey, does anyone know where I can find neem oil or a sulphur based fungicide? and does anybody know any brand name products they have used with success
    Thanks!

    I don't think you even need fungicide for Sarracenia seeds.

    well if they are going to be in the fridge in a moist paper towel for eight weeks they might need some.. I want to use gibberellic acid but I heard a really experienced nursery say it wasn't good and that the seedlings aren't as robust.
    so back to the topic what are my options what have you used?

    I don't know, but the Savage Garden says they're suspectible for damp-off diseases. See if that helps. Good luck

    I gave you instructions on how to stratify D. capensis seed?
    D. capensis is tropical and it doesn't require stratification.

    Four weeks is all you need for most Sarracenia seeds. 6 weeks works better for S. purpurea. "Institution" type paper towels (the kind you find in public restrooms) seem to not get as moldy as the stuff you buy in rolls - perhaps they use more bleach in the paper or something.

    Refer to Aaron Ellison's article in the American Journal of Botany INTERSPECIFIC AND INTRASPECIFIC VARIATION IN SEED SIZE AND GERMINATION REQUIREMENTS OF SARRACENIA (SARRACENIACEAE)

    Why not use damp chopped long fiber sphagnum which has its own anti-fungal properties? It's even sold as "NoDampOff"

    If seed goes moldy whilst stratifying in the fridge, it's usually dead in the first place.

    I've never had any fungus problems on seeds in the fridge.
