Hi all,

A friend just gave me a very small number of seeds. Before I just
go off and plant them, I would like to ask if these seeds need any
special treatment. This is my first venture into pygmy and tuberous
drosera, and with the small quantity of seed I have, I would like
assure myself that I am giving them the best possible chance. The
species are as follows:

D. Gigantea, D. Leucoblasta, D. Pygmea, D. Cistiflora, D.
Peltata, D. Nitidula, D. Whittakeri, G. Violacea.

Do any need stratification? Would Giberelic(sp) acid be needed on
any? Special soil mixtures? Or anything else?

Even if you only know about one of the species, I would be grateful
to hear from you.
