    Little advise from seed on PARROT PITCHER 'sarracenia psittacina'

    Hi all

    Can I ask a really silly question, when can you sow these plants...

    Can you germinate them like in the VFT in just water to get them going ?

    Many thanks Noddy

    you need to stratify them in the fridge for around 6 weeks.
    damp paper towel in a plastic bag is easiest.
    After that just sow them on the media of your choice, best if its something like
    peat/sand
    peat/perlite
    lfs/peat/sand or anything along those lines.

    Wow 5 years...

    That's a while for a baby plant hey...

    Going to try the indoor method .... wet tissue in a bag... and watch ... 3 weeks they think and then they can go 2 year stretch so I think I'll give them a year then shut them down...
