    All good info. I'm going to try some intermedia from NC, and some filiformis var. filiformis. Hopefully both will work out well. This is going to be an exciting experiment! The only Drosera I've tried so far is capensis.

    Thanks to Steve for the D. filiformis var. filiformis seed! I sowed some filiformis and intermedia seed on 1/14, and stuck them outside to stratify. Just brought them inside on 2/18, so hopefully the clock is ticking on germination!

    You should have no problems with them, like I said in my last post, they are TOUGH, and clumps of them are REALLY striking. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

    Hi there - I live in NY, and I can send you lots of D. intermedia that lives in my outdoor bog. Comes back every year, so I guess it's hardy!

    Just PM me later in the spring, around late March, when I will uncover the bog.

    I have a liking towards D.xbeleziana, which as far as I know is sterile.
    I think it's a great looking plant!!

    I usually clone my D. filiformis plants via leaf cuttings as it results in a larger, hardier plant in a far shorter time. However, the few times I have grown them out from seed, I have always provided a natural stratification. I sow seeds in late fall, and by early spring I have sprouts. I would assume that would work with a refrigerator stratification as well.

    Cheers,

    Yep, I'm sure you could get some seeds to germinate without stratification, but you'd be wasting a lot of seeds I think-

    I am in the same position as VFT-guy Steve as far as seed too, tho I am in a much colder climate, they fall off the plants in fall and sit under the snow until spring, when they sprout- sometimes even stuff that can't live here will survive (in seed form) overwinter and come up from seed in spring (tho that's usually a 2 year cycle, the plants don't flower soon enough to aoid death at the hands of Jack Frost)
