Would like to know if seeds of D paradoxa need to stratify before sowing ? Thank for your help.

Thank so much Willy for the infos. I bought paradoxa seeds from you. :). Is it '' Type'' kind ? Just received the envelope this morning...
By curiosity, would you mind to tell how much GA3 powder (gram ?) needed to make 10ml ? I have GA3.

My experience with Drosera paradoxa "Type" seeds is it took them almost exactly a year to germinate on their own sown on wet peat at 23 degrees C.

A year to germinate is a little bit .... looooong :). Did you try using GA3 to accelerate germination ?

No special treatment whatsoever.

Agreed a year is a long time wait, I had given up on them.

I believe the part of the issue was my temperature, I had the seeds at 23 degrees with my other sundews. I believe the petiolaris complex likes temperatures in the mid 30’s. Mine have been continuously blooming now for a while so I will be trying to start more seeds soon. I won’t be using GA3 but I will try a humid 35 degrees consistent temperature this time.

I believe the part of the issue was my temperature, I had the seeds at 23 degrees with my other sundews. I believe the petiolaris complex likes temperatures in the high 30’s. Mine have been continuously blooming now for a while so I will be trying to start more seeds soon. I won’t be using GA3 but I will try a humid 35 degrees consistent temperature this time.
Thank you. Will try both ways and let see...

Wow, a year! I have some I’ve been waiting on for two months. Good to know it may just take patience. Thanks for sharing that!
