Drosera filiformis seed needs cold stratification for germination.


Cold Stratification

Cold stratification for temperate carnivorous plants Is to simulate the period of cool, damp conditions that happen during winter. Stratification helps to break down or allow moisture to penetrate the seeds waxy protective layer. Cold stratification involves placing seeds in a refrigerator or outdoors at a temperature below 5 degrees C on a damp surface for 2-6 weeks. Longer durations of cold temperatures will encourage the most germination, but mold growth can spoil the seed. When you take the seeds out of stratification it simulates the start of spring.

Option 1: Sowing seeds directly on your soil mix and placing the pots in plastic bags in the refrigerator for the duration of cold stratification. Prepare the desired soil mix that you would use to grow your seed. I prefer to use previously used soil as its less likely to mold than fresh. Lightly moisten the soil mixture so that it isn’t soaking, but make sure that it will provide the seeds with sufficient moisture. Sprinkle seeds on surface, and place the pot in a plastic Ziploc bag. Leave in the refridgerator for your preferred duration of cold stratification.

Option 2: Placing seeds inside of a moist disposable towel in a Ziploc bag. Moisten a paper towel or use a blue shop hand towel (“the sturdy blue stuff that mechanics use it’s 10000x better than paper towel which breaks down and goes slimy during longer stratification. Place the folded moist towel with your seeds in the centre inside a Ziploc bag. Leave in fridge for the desired period of cold stratification. I use hydrogen peroxide, turns into water but also kills off some of the mould spores before going into stratification and doesn’t seem to effect the seeds.”) H2O


Option 3: Submerge or float seeds in a small amount of water or hydrogen peroxide. It is important the seeds stay submerged or floating for the entire stratification period. Once they have stratified for an appropriate time suck up the seeds into a pipette, eyedropper or gently rinse the container on to your planting media taking care not to wash the seeds away or bury them.

Be careful to monitor for mold. In any of the above methods mold can develop and ruin your seeds. To help prevent that don’t include debris, bits of the flower or stalk, check on your stratifying seed periodically.

Good growing everyone!
