    Stratifying a few more seeds

    Just one of my Sarracenia crosses.


    Using the simple paper towel method and snack bags as I always do.


    Just folded the above damp paper towel over the seeds.


    And off into the snack bag. I tape the empty seed packet to the bag and date it.


    This is my second round of seeds for the season. I have 20 bags already in the fridge.

    I'm not sure...I've never really had any during the strat process so I haven't had to deal with it.

    I add a few drops of peroxide to my water and my contamination is much lower.

    Fred do you treat your seeds with anything before stratifying? I am about to stratify some seeds and was thining of doing a 1 part bleach to 10 parts water but thought I would ask first.
    Thanks

    Sorry I missed the part about not stratifying with anything. I know bleach is used to sterilize seeds for cultureing. Would leaving them in the solution hurt them in the stratifying process?

    Also how long do you strat yout seeds? is 2 weeks sufficient?
