    Generally, plants which when mature need dormancy need refridgeration, or "stratification", to induce germination. For some other seeds, refridgeration also helps extend life span when storing. However, I am assuming you want to sow these as soon as possible. So, to answer your question the following seeds benefit from a stratification period:

    Drosera intermedia "North Carolina",

    Drosera intermedia,

    Drosera anglica "Traustein, Germany,

    Drosera anglica "Kasilof, Alaska",

    Drosera rotundifolia "Kasilof, Alaska",

    Drosera rotundifolia "Traustain, Germany, and

    Drosera filiformis var. filiformis.

    Drosera nidiformis could use it also i believe. I think byblis also can use this period but I've germinated them without it.

    hope this helps.

    All seeds should be stored in cold, dry conditions with the possible exceptions of Nepenthes, Utricularia, Genlisea, and Pinguicula which are best sown asap as the germination window seems quite narrow.
