    Question Drosera arcturi seed germination instructions

    Hi,


    I’ve recently received Some D arcturi seeds which I have had absolutely
    no experience with before :O so I have been searched everywhere for some germination instructions/tips and I just can’t seem to find any decent material.
    I was hoping for some guidance, any tips would be incredibly appreciated

    Long, cold stratification and short cool growing season. They grow super slowly too.

    I'm just going to throw mine out into the bog and let them do their thing. If they live, great, if not......so be it.

    Good idea lol I’m thinking I mite do two trial runs, I’ve got 100+ seeds so half I’ll sow soon and the other half I’ll keep just in case the first lot fails

    From my friends in the NZCPS - cold damp stratify in the refrigerator for at least 2 months. Expect about that long for germination too. Search for other threads on Terraforums as there has been posts on this species before. Good luck.
