I acquired some Book Triggerplant (Stylidium calcaratum) seeds earlier in the year and here's the results so far :smile:

Congrats Carl! Earlier this year means you sowed them in late winter?

I would have expected it was necessary to sow them in September/October.

Well - I guess you now have the conditions right to try some annual WA Utricularia like multifida or petertaylorii.

Regards

Martin

Martin, I received the seeds 21st January 2012. I soaked them for 24 hours in water, with a small patch of smoke paper, then sowed them on peat/sand mix. Unfortunately U. multifida seed is not quite as easy to obtain :wink:
