    Sarr seedlings; when to uncover

    Thanks again for all the prior advice. My Sarr seedling count is now 7 or 8 (out of ~25) so my yield isn't great, but for a first-time-ever attempt, I'll take it. The seeds were the ones Travis (Pyro) harvested and adnedarn sent out in packets; they're a mix from around 80 or so different Sarr species.

    At what point should I put holes in the saran wrap (they have plenty of air in there) to start acclimating them to lower RH? They were in stratification in the fridge for 6 weeks, and have been under a strong fluorescent for about 4 weeks. If after 4 weeks there's still a good chance more will germinate, can anyone suggest a time line for this?

    I germinated about 60 different crosses of Sarrs seed in Jan. They all geminated in 10 to 27 days with the average being about 15. If mine don’t geminate in under 5 or 6 weeks, I usually pitch them but if they are germinating, I usually leave them covered until they have their 1st or 2nd pitcher. The seedlings below are still covered.

    I usually wait until the majority (your judgement call) have at least 4 pitcher leaves. By that time all that are going to geminate have usually done so. Runts get culled out later.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Hey Fred P just wondering what you use for soil mix when germinating your sarracenia. Also what method do you use for stratification. Also do you start you indoors and if so under what lights as your look like they are growing much faster then mine and they germinated in Jan as well.
