    How long will it take to grow from a seed? It will be in peat moss and be outside in direct sunlight.

    Fresh seed, immediately sown can germinate within a couple of weeks and continue germinating for a year. Older seed can take longer. Time from germination to flowering is often 3 years -- more or less.

    Good information can be found at

    Scotty, Stop it! There are almost no absolutes with CP. I have had some VFT's flower at 2 years. Rare, yes, but it does happen. More often than not, 3 to 5 years for sure.

    What does flower mean? I just want them to grow and have a plant. I'm getting 50 seeds so if flowering means where they produce more seeds that's ok I can wait. I just want to know how long before I get some nice looking plants. It's July now, will I have some before fall, winter, or should I expect next spring?

    2 to 10 weeks, sometimes longer. Yes, flowering is a different story.
