    i had sown some seeds in my 10 gallon terrarium and was wondering how long it takes them to germinate and or do they require stratification?


    any help appreciated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    No, they are tropical plants so they dont need a stratification period. The seedlings that I am growing germinated in exactly 2 weeks. I personally think that is pretty good speed for seeds.

    Most Drosera require at least 2 weeks, but often this is closer to a month or more for most temperate and tropicals. Other species may take much longer - up to 3 years for some of the Australian tuberous species! Cultivate patience along with your seeds, and don't give up on a pot of sown seed: if there is no germination after a couple of months, reuse the pot and sow it with another genera of CP. Keep the original label as well as the new one, and you might get a happy surprise long after you thought it was impossible. It happens!
