    My Sarracenia Purpurea produced seed in Sept.22 2001 and I put it in the fridge in a clear plastic film canister up until now Oct.26 2001. I've been checking on it on intervals to ensure no fugus had started to wreak havoc. So can I sow now or is it too early still. If it isn't to early please tell me how to sow it. If it too early please give me a time until i can sow it. Thanks Nep.G.

    was the seed just tossed into the canister dry? Stratifying seed takes place when the seed is in a moist environment and held at the proper temperature for a period of time. I am not an expert on stratifying Sarracenia seed but in general 6-8 weeks is the normal length of time for seeds needing stratifying.

    First of all not an expert:
    I did have success with ruba this past spring. I had seeds in an envelope in the fridge over the winter. This past march I brought them out and stratified the over peat with one of those mini greenhouses that I bought at wallmart. Fill partially with distilled water and kept them in the fridge for about 3 weeks.I later removed them and placed the tray in the kitchen area where light shines in thru the window a few hours a day. It took about a month for germination to occur. I almost gave up. I moved they tray to my terrariums and I currently have about 18 plants that are doing well. I did lose a few in the process. Plan to have then skip dormacy this year then put them out in the spring.
    Anyone feel free to chime in :-)

    Seeds should be fine Nep G. I am pretty sure Sarracenia store for quite a while. You will still need to stratify them though. I don't have experience with growing them from seed.. but you will need to sow them on moist potting mix and toss in the fridge in a sealed baggy for 6 weeks or so. You could also wrap them in moist papertowel and then sow after they stratify and are ready to germinate. Either way you would probably want to give them a shot of fungicide before sending them to the fridge.
