Which seeds for a beginner?
Posted 03 January 2012 - 16:02 PM
I have a copy of the CPS seed list but it’s all a bit mind boggling. I don’t want to pick rare seeds or seeds which would be more suitable for an experienced CP grower. I would prefer sarracenias which could eventually be grown outside but apart from that I have no preferences. Can anyone offer me any advice on which seeds would be best please?
I'm not a novice at growing from seed, I've just never tried CPs yet.

I have been reading through the post on germinating seeds and found loads of useful information. It has surprised me how simple it sounds or are these famous last words.

Make sure they get enough water and good air flow, and you'll be set up for a nice set of seedlings :)

Your method looks very organised and well labelled.

Thanks for the photos, it is good to know what the germinating seeds will look like, I once spent a couple of months nurturing a tray of weeds.

One thing to consider about what happens in nature, usually, plants are adapted to initiating life when the temps are warmer and the day length is longer and the snow melts / spring rains engulph the seeds, which is the catalyst for germination and sustaining them until their roots can develop and withstand summer drought.
