Dionaea muscipula 'B52"

Dionaea muscipula 'B52': Dionaea muscipula 'B52' seeds require stratification before germination. To stratify, mix the seeds with a small amount of damp sphagnum moss and place them in a plastic bag. Seal the bag and put it in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. After stratification, sow the seeds in a well-draining soil mix, covering them with a thin layer of soil. Water the soil and keep it evenly moist. Place the pot in a bright, warm location and cover it with a plastic bag to retain moisture. The seeds should germinate in 1-2 months.

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.
