    Fungal growth on your seeds usually means the end. They probably won't germinate. I'd give them a month or 2 then toss them, if nothing happens. The seed could be old or sometimes there is fungal growth on the seeds while still in the pod. Don't give up, if you don't get germination. Sarracenia from seed to maturity is exciting.

    I had the same problem. I used my finger to gently scrape away what I could, but that wasn't much. I think I've had a 25% germination rate in spite mold.

    this mold is not on the soil just the seed strangely enough. the seed sticks out as a little grey and white spot. i sprayed it with orthanex again i am hoping that will cure my problem if the mold is actually a problem at all. these things grow just a little north of me they have got ot have the same thing in the wild.

    What have you sowed the seed on? Pure sphagnum moss will cut down on the mold threat and also make your seedlings grow about a third faster.

    I have them planted on pure sphagnum peat, i used those jiffy trays that have the condensed peat. i liked the idea of replanting the seedlings without disturbing the roots at all, so i disided to try it. Do you think that peat has the same fungis fighting power as long fiberd sphagnum? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Hi,
    If you sprinkle a minute layer of moss peat over the sead, that will help. What conditions are keeping the pot in? Sometimes a little mould appears after a couple of days, but in my experience has rarely been a problem.
    Best Regards
