    Stratification is basically a "simulated season". In this case, plants drop their seeds just before the start of winter, but it just doesnt do to have seedlings sprouting at that time to die with the onset of winter. The seeds lay there and wait for spring to roll around before they sprout. In cultivation we "stratify" the seeds in order to force them to sprout when we want them to. Basically we fool the seed into thinking it has just gone through winter (wrapped in a damp paper towel in the fridge for a month or so). Then we put them under grow lights indoors to fool them into thinking its spring even if there is 2 feet of snow on the ground.
    For more info on this check out the FAQ pages at http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html

    Good luck
