    I sow my seeds in 4" 1/2 pots in about early february and place them in my unheated greenhouse. The compost usually frezes solid 5 or 6 times wich duplicates the stratification process that happens in nature. They usually germinate in about late june when the temperatures get warmer!. I leave the seedlings in the pots untill the following year when they have pitchers about 3" in length depending on the species. Then I re pot them individually into 3" pots where they remain for a further 2 years. I'll post a pic as soon as I can get one!!

    Back row: S.Alata, Leucophylla, Leucophylla
    Front row: S.Psittacina, S. Minor, S. Peurpurea ssp Purpurea.

    They are all 2 years old and are ready for reppoting individually.

    Cute plants Richard! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    It sounds like your seedlings are getting too much heat, NG. You may want to place a layer of cardboard(or anything else)between the sprouts and the radiator. I'd say ideal temp. would be around 75F with high(but not dripping wet)humidity. But if what you're doing now is working...

    OK Chris I think I probably should do that.

    I'm trying sarracenia seeds this year. I tried but never managed to sprout them. But that was after soaking them in Ga3 and skipping stratification, just dumped them in the bog. Now I put several different varieties of seed in a moist paper towel in the fridge. How long should I leave them in?

    Leave them in the fridge for around 2 months.
