    Just received some Drosophyllum seed. I assume that I should wait till spring to sow them? So I need to know how to store them. I currently have them in the fridge, is this ok? Thanks.

    I don't think "proper" storing Drosophyllum seed is much of an issue to be concerned about. A couple of years ago, I found a paper bag with packets of both Drosophyllum and Byblis gigantea seeds that had been buried in a refigerator at my office for 22 years. Yes, 22 years! The bag was covered with spilled gunk (a very specialized technical term) that had accumulated over the years. Both the Drosophyllum and Byblis germinated just fine. 95 of 100 Drosophyllum seeds germinated.

    IMO, better to sow them in the winter. Around Nov-Dec. would be good in the southern CA area. The young seedlings like cooler conditions.

    Remember that you must scarify the seeds before sowing, otherwise they will not germinate.
