Sowing Drosera seeds cold stratified on damp paper


Recommended Posts

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.

John.
