Venus Flytrap Seeds 10pk
Shalt not lie, I do love my lil monsters
No “potting soil” and no Miracle-Gro because they contain minerals that will kill Venus flytraps.
Prepare a growing container. This container is meant to keep the seeds moist and warm, but should allow for air circulation. A good easy choice is a Tupperware-type container, in which you poke holes in the top cover, and also the bottom portion. This allows for drainage of water out, and also ventilation for air circulation and for excess heat to escape from inside the container (see above photo). As an alternative growing container, you may also use any regular pot or planting container, and cover the top with a clear plastic bag.
Moisten the growing medium with Distilled Water and place the growing medium into the container. Now you are ready to plant the seeds!
*Do NOT bury the seeds*. Seeds are not planted underground. Instead, you will scatter the seeds on top of the moist growing medium, and then sift a very fine dust of sphagnum peat moss over the seeds. The very light dusting helps to retain moisture and keep the emerging root from drying out and becoming calloused and stunted. The dusting also helps give the seed something to push against as the root emerges and seeks to dig itself into the medium instead of merely pushing itself along the soil surface. However, the seeds should only be very lightly covered, to the point where you can still see them through the dusting, or they may not germinate. If you can no longer see the seed after dusting them with the sphagnum peat moss, that’s too much of a dusting!
Spray Distilled water on the dusting of peat moss to moisten it and the seeds, and cover the container with the vented lid. Once most of the seeds have germinated, within 4-6 weeks, the covering can be permanently removed.
