Germination of

Cephalotus follicularis

White cape sundew, Albino cape sundew, Cape sundew.

Cephalotus follicularis

To germinate Cephalotus follicularis, start by preparing a soil mix consisting of equal parts of sphagnum peat moss and perlite. Moisten the soil mix and sow the seeds on top of the soil, then cover the container with a plastic bag to create a humid environment. Place the container in a location with bright, indirect light and maintain a temperature of 70-75�F. The seeds should germinate in 4-6 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
