So, I've had reasonably good luck with germination Dionaea and Drosera seeds, but I'm having a nightmarish time with Sarracenia...
Here are the approaches I've tried:
1) Seeds in damp paper towel, in ziploc bag in refrigerator for four weeks.
Result: Mold everywhere
Conclusion: WAY too much water.
2) Seeds on a paper towel (barely dampened with a VERY dilute sulfer/water solution) in a tupperware in refrigerator for four weeks.
~15% of seeds had mold. Remainder sown on peat/perlite under a grow light and sprayed with a sulfur fungicide solution, in a tray of water.
Result: remains to be seen, but several seeds are growing mold rather than germinating. I'm going to hit it with a neem oil fungicide tomorrow in an act of desperation...
Conclusion: Poor air circulation? Sulfur's not doing the trick?
3) The last of my seeds sown directly into pot containing moist peat/perlite. Pot sprayed down heavily with neem-oil based fungicide. Excess liquid gently squeezed out of media (though still wet). Whole pot placed in ziploc bag and placed in refrigerator today, to ride out the next month before being moved to growlights.
I have fading hope for trial #2 above, and a feeling of desperate dread for trial #3. (Even with the Neem oil, I'm worried that mold will set in over the next month.) I'm tempted to simply take trial #3 out of its ziploc bag and just put it outside for the winter, but I fear that the utterly frozen conditions of January/February here in Brooklyn will be too harsh for the seeds...?
