    What's the best way to germinate callistos? I pitched a bunch of seed onto a bed of sphagnum moss and put it in a container of RO water.

    I really didn't so much research beforehand, and now I'm wondering whether I needed to stratify or soak the seeds or anything.

    I'm pretty much hoping for the best at this time...

    I've never been able to germinate pygmy Drosera seed, but I would try heat stratification in the summer followed by sowing in late summer - early fall on 70/30 sand/peat. D. callistos is usually propagated by gemmae. If you do get germination I would be interested in your methods. Good luck!
