    Tell me about the technique you used to get them to flower
    and give seeds at that time of the year. You seem to be a
    very experienced grower, tell me more, I'm eager to learn
    from you.

    ok fedrick im not a very good speller..........ok i think you know what a Sarracenia is do you?
    well there are 8 diffrent types of "Sarracenia" in the us but the us is only the only place where they grow the 8 speices are
    S.alata
    S. purpurea
    S ruba
    S. minor
    S. oreophylla
    S. leucophylla
    S. flava
    S. psittacenia

    now if your plant is meture you should be able to buy one from the pft thats the place that pays for this web paige and it will send up an umbrella like flower in a little bud that won't open for about a week when it dose open the flower has pretty petals and in bettween the pettals should 8 depending on how much there realy is any way it should have a gap down the middle now if you wont to get seed and pollenate it take(tear the pettals jently of) and inside should be these little yellow hanging things (anteres) and below should be pollen but if theres not you poke the antheres around a bit till some pollen falls out then you get the pollen on your finger and that thing in bettween the petals on the side of the pollen there should be a pointy pretuding point out of the thing in the middle thats where u put the pollen on keep on doing this untill theres no pollen left (once a day) then 5 mounths later the pod should go brown and u should see the seed poking out and then u break apart the pod (where the antherays(stigma)use to be)and then wet a paper towl and put the seed in it then flod it up put it in the fridge for 6 weeks then you get a plactic chinease container or some thing with a lid on it put some peat moss in it and sow the seed on the surface put it about 1 foot below a fluresent light and keep wetting the seed (with a spray bottle NO! fertilizer) but don't drown the seed and in about 6 weeks the seed should start germinating (sprouting) but myn took 1 week cos i had it on Sphagnum moss [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Frederick,

    Since Matti is in Australia, that time of the year would be the warm to hot weather time for him, unless I am mistaken. Therefore, it would be logical for his Sarracenia to flower and set seed.
    Is that what you were getting at, when asking how he did that at that time of the year?

    Regards,

    Joe
