    Growing sarracenias from seeds..

    I have around 300+ sarracenia seeds that I have in the fridge ( in a ziploc bag with a napkin and some in a ziploc bag and spaghmom moss ). I've tried to grow a Venus flytrap and darlingtona californica but failed :/ kinda brought my confidence down. So know I'm wondering if I can get some tips on growing sarracenias from seed. Once I take them out the fridge what should I do? I live in Chula Vista , CA near San Diego , CA and want to grow them outside.. Any tips would help thank you

    Sarracenia are nearly effortless to grow from seed (if you process them correctly!). Case in point:

    has pointed you to an excellent article that describes the process well. Follow those instructions and you can't fail.

    I think keeping them humid is important. I've tried Sarracenia and Darlingtonia seeds before and followed the instructions, but they never germinated, probably because they dried out.

    I think that's the same thing that happened to me when I tired to grow Darlingtonias.. I heard keeping the pot in a ziploc bag works
