    I'm not sure that these plants require any stratification or much special seed preparation. What medium do you have these planted in?

    I'm not as familiar with dews as I am with other species. Do any of your species require a cold stratification? Many tropicals don't.

    You can do both ways.

    If your pot is small enough that you don't mind having it in the fridge or have enough space, feel free to sew the seeds in the pot and put it in a ziploc bag and leave it in there for the required weeks for that plant. Only trouble you may have is with mold. But you can check on it and keep it from being a real problem.

    Or you can do it the way I recommend which is to just put the seeds in the fridge in a small container of distilled water. Then after the allotted amount of weeks in the fridge you just pour the seeds and water out over the desired medium. Or you can use an eyedropper like I did and grab a clump at a time and distribute around the pot. (They will clump, the only drawback to the water method is the clumping in water drops that will cause the seeds to grow on top of each other.)

    Here are some Drosera rotundifolia I stratified with this method earlier this year. You can see how they clumped because of it but went fine:
