    Oh~ Congratulation!
    That was a pretty smart method.
    I'll try it next time.
    Thanks for your sharing. Thanks~ Cindy.

    Interesting thought

    I have a question to ask please, I have now had two off spring from my mother plant and managed to get mine to seed, ;-) and it's going strong .... My question is this when can I remove the seeds from the plant, and do the seeds need to be chilled, before they will germinate. Please can you let me know thanks...

    Can this method be used with other types of CP's? I might try this out with some capensis seeds.

    chezilla,

    What a friend of mine did was to put a thin layer of distilled water in a petri dish and she sowed the Drosera seeds on top. She then kept the dish covered with a lid.

    Well CINDY

    Sounds good to me... I have a few seeds that I would like to try this way..

    So is stratifying required or not since there seems to be a conflict of interest in the post if you should or not, not to mention the success rates..

    Stratifying is NOT required. Germination without stratification should be near 100% if you have fresh seed.
