    Some sources say to cold stratify for four weeks, some say stratification is not needed. Some don't say.

    What's the consensus with the successful VFT seed germinators here?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    No stratification required.

    VFTs flower in May and drop their seeds in June. They quickly germinate and have 3/4 a season's growth before winter dormancy.

    Plants which drop seeds in the autumn (sarracenia/darlingtonia) require stratification.

    Sarracenia are more stratification dependent aren't they? I've sown some darlingtonia without stratification and 1 germinated at first, in december all the others started germinating to. The doubt is if that the cold they caught is enough to consider they have been stratified
    But I've seen topics of darlingtonia sown fresh with complete sucess (in cpuk, don't know if the user I'm refering to is also around here)
