Subject: 3 Q's: gemmae, seedlings and hybrids

Q1: Can pygmy Drosera gemmae be stored? What is the best method
and how long can they be kept in storage?

Q2: I've had a difficult time growing Sarracenia from seedlings. I
notice that as the seed sprouts, it produces the cotyledons (sp?)
about 1 cm above the soil, and then all the pitchers are produced at
that spot, the same place I assume the rhizome will develop. Should
I push some of the soil up around the plant to bring it up to that

Q3: When making a hybrid cross between Sarracenia species, does it
make a difference in the offspring which plant produces the seed?
