    Unhappy

    how should i sow my dionaea seeds? everyone and everywhere i go they tell me something different. some people say "you need to do a cold stratification" others say "no you don't". i read somewhere you could use GA to help germination and eliminate cold stratification but others told me it isn't necessary. reeeally confused. i'd like some information from someone that has real life experience sowing them.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Ok, so here is how I sow my seeds. There is NO NEED to give them a cold stratification. How I know of this is because first off I've tried both methods and got the same results either way except the non-stratification one germinated a little faster. No special chemicals are needed either as these guys are very easy to germinate.

    Most seeds under 1.5 years old will "hatch" fairly quickly. Just place them ontop of some LFS.

    Long Fibered Sphagnum moss - planting medium good for VFT seeds.

    Anyway, I just took all the seeds that grew this year and placed them on top of a mix of peat moss and perlite, kept the soil constantly moist, and they are just now starting to pop up (about 3-4 weeks).

    Works for me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Depending on how old the seeds are, I have had some sprout after a few months to a week or two.
