    Easiest To Germinate?

    Today I may be ordering from the ICPS seed bank. I heard capensis seeds only need to be scattered on top of peat, like just sprinkle them then soon they'll grow. What other sundew seeds are like that?

    Pretty much every CP is that way. The only exception are temperate species that require a stratification period first. The seed even with them, are sown the same way. From experience all of these have been easy for me. I left out the temperate species that need stratification or GA3 treatment (VFTs do not) and a few non-temperates that I've found to be difficult or have poor germination rate (the regular form of D. indica, D. aliciae, D. burmannii, and D. sessilifolia to name a few are some that I find fussy).

    Byblis liniflora
    Dionaea muscipula
    Drosera capensis -- Albino (white flower)
    Drosera capensis -- narrow leaf
    Drosera capensis -- red
    Drosera capillaris
    Drosera dielsiana
    Drosera spatulata
    Proboscidea parviflora var. hohokamiana

    Of course these are my opinions and certainly not written in stone.

    Good luck!

    Remember the Sarr will need stratification (cold moist conditions) for about 4-6 weeks. I usually do it for five weeks.

    If I can spell it by heart, shouldn't you?
