    According to the Savage Garden.. You need to sow them on the surface of some Moist potting mix (peatmoss I guess.. or sphagnum or something) and toss in the fridge in a sealed container so they don't dry out. I would leave them for at least 4-6 weeks. Peter in the book also recommends spritzing them with fungicide before putting the pots in the fridge to stratify.

    If you have alot of seed I would just do a portion and just keep the rest in a dry sealed container in the fridge. So you have spare seed to try again.

    I know this is the wrong forum- but does the same thing apply for Drosera seeds?
