    Photo One year Old Sar Seedlings

    Just wanted to share a photo and encourage anyone here who wants to grow Sarracenia from seed but was reluctant to try. They really grow and develop quickly. These seedlings are a year old...... an S. flava, a S. leucophylla, and a S. oreophila. They are in 3" pots.

    Here are some 6-month old Sarracenia seedlings, seed from Brooks Garcia.

    Finally, some very young (2-3 weeks (?) old) of S. rosea 'luteola'.

    I was just thinking that if I did crosses I would send you the seeds. Because you're good at that.

    This makes me really wish I didn't screw up by trying to put my Sarracenia seedlings outside multiple times... Mine germinated in August last year...and they're still making pitchers like your S. rosea... Then again, it's a hybrid with psittacina and minor, but still. :x They need to grow next year.

    Jeez Chris, my luteolas from your seeds still don't have pitchers yet! And I only have two sprouts so far, but I have high hopes! (If I could find my camera, I'd get pics. )

    How fast are yours growing?

    I am growing these under flurorescent lights.............regular 4-foot fluorescent bulbs in a standard shop light (cheap). the soil is mostly peat......but I mix in some course sand, a little bit of perlite, and a little bit of bark and soil from underneath a pitch pine (including some broken down pine needles etc.). I initially fill a 3" pot with this mixture and add a little live Sphagnum on top. the seeds are then planted, and the whole thing is watered and then goes into a zip-loc bag and into the fridge for a couple of weeks. I then remove it and it goes undert the lights (about 1-foot underneath) in a room that is kept about 71. They stay in the zip-loc during germination. As the seedlings develop new leaves they will be transplanted into plastic bathroom cups with a hole cut in the bottom, usually two plants per cup. I think the little bit of real "soil" in with the peat may provdie some extra nutrients. Later I may transplant into 3" pots like shown, but they can stay in the bathroom cups a long time. I do not supplement with any fertilizer although the plants do catch fungus gnats and sometimes fruti flies on occasion. I wish I had the time or space to do more.....basically I am working in a very tiny area. I do want to give these luteolas special care/treatment.....hope to be able to distribute them here!
    Happy holidays to everyone here on Terraforums!
