    Hey everyone I am sure you remember the soo many qustions from me on this Pitcher Plants seeds. Anyway I saw a small greenhouse type set for clearance sale of &#365.00!!! Nice thing,about 2 feet long by 5 inches high. It comes with 72 peat moss pellets. And my Purpurea Purpurea seeds were due for planting and I said a greenhouse and peat pellets for &#365.00!! Well I bought it added water and planted my seeds on the peat. My question is will these seeds germinate OK on Peat Moss alone? Since I see them in my area growing only in spahgnum moss I am not sure about the germination of them and I know someone on here would. I also have ALOT of seeds left over. Thanks for all of your help!!!! Nep.G.

    Sarracenia seedlings are very cute... :cheesy:

    Peat should be perfect. Because the seedlings'll be rather delicate, grow them in pure peat for a few years to be on the safe side, and then pot them in a more coarse mix. You stratified them, right?

    mmm...peat sandwiches!

    Yes I stratisfied them for 4 weeks and 2 days. I think this is long enough for Purpurea Prpurea isn't it? Mmmm those peat sandwhiches sound great! When will you be making them? I'll bring some tea made from peat! Peat tea anyone?

    Yes that's long enough.
    I think I'll call 'em BLPs(bacon, lettuce, and peat), and I'm sure they'd go great with peat tea. To assure top quality, only Canadian or New Zealand sphagnum should be used. I made a whole pile of BLPs today and my family and friends had a lovely time chowing down on my "all natural, terrestrial sandwiches!" :cheesy:
