2013 Seeds Saved

   Posted by: dsheret759   in Gem of the Day

CAM00120I have been collecting and cleaning Venus Fly Trap seeds from the garden for the last several weeks. I removed about 1/5 of the seed heads and left the remainder to self sow. I ended up with 5.7 grams of seeds. These will be divided between planting in the greenhouse, tissue culture cloning, some stored with a seed bank. The remainder placed strategically back in the garden. While it will be several years to see the full results of the harvest of 2013. I think we are off to a good start. I have ordered several 100 other carnivorous plant seeds and they too will be put in the greenhouse for  germination. I have taken a fancy to Sundews as well and will replant those as well.
