To avoid fungal problems associated with soil I've fridge stratified some Drosera filiformis seeds on kitchen paper dampened with distilled water.
I wonder if anybody here has done this and have some tips on how to best get the seeds onto the soil?
In this batch there are few enough seeds that I can pick up the seeds individually and place them on the soil surface, but I'd prefer a more practical approach.
One idea I had was to carefully tear away the top layer of paper along with the seeds, and letting it dry so that I can tap off the seeds. But I'm concerned that the seeds will be damaged if they're dehydrated after stratification.
