Thread: Seed Planting Questions

  1. #1
    Guest
    Ok, I'm going to be planting some seeds in my terrarium. I need some advice, should I plant them directly into the tank, use a germanation try and then plant em after a few weeks, how deep should I put the seeds?

    I'm carpetting the WHOLE tank with pygmy drosera (like a carpet of deadly stickies so that no matter where the bug walks he'll get gummed up more and more...it's a mass killing field hehehehehehahahahahahaha!!!...oh...sorry). and then I'm planting some dionaea. Thanks...

    Here is a very detailed guide to starting Drosera from seed written by our resident Drosera master Tamlin. Hope this helps. Handbook of Drosera seed cultivation

    Good luck
