Drosera seed sowing question

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

How soon after collecting my own Drosera seeds should I sow them..?

Would a spell in the fridge help with germination at all..? Or should I store them till next spring?, if so, how is best to store them.?

The seeds I have collected (From my own plants) are Drosera rotundifolia, Drosera intermedia, Drosera anglica and Drosera Filliformis.

Sorry about all the questions, this is the first time I've collected seed.!

Cheers.

Basically the answer is that you should sow the seed outdoors now so that they will get several weeks of cold and wet, just as they would in nature. You might want to use a sieved part of the soil mix as a top dressing, and cover with fleece or otherwise protect the pots from the rain so that seed won't be washed down into the soil.

The seeds will germinate in the spring.

Thanks for that.

I'll have a go tomorrow.
