Sarracenia from seed....?


By Sid

In a rash moment (especially considering I have NO more room left for seeds!) the other day I bought 20 Sarracenia (pitcher plant) seeds off the internet. Growing instructions were included and I also looked it up in one of my books. Problem is, the two sets of instructions are different. Can anyone who has had success with these tell me a tried and tested method of growing these from seed? This may be a question for Sarraceniac :-)

On plant Sarracenia purpurea



Hi Sid - maybe you'd better send him a PM as he doesn't seem to be around at the moment? He may not catch up with your question... just a thought!
