    • Even with proper storage, seeds will inevitably age as the embryos wither.  This aging process decreases the number of viable seeds or rate of germination
    • In order to give you the best possible chance at successful germination, we only sell fresh seeds, harvested within the last two growing seasons
    • The seeds we sell are either imported from trusted sellers (including reputable nurseries and private growers) or are harvested from our own plants
    • These sarracenia seeds are produced via carefully controlled hand-pollination
    • With so many imitations online, all our seeds are genuine carnivorous plant seeds - We guarantee it
    • Starting and nurturing your very own carnivorous plant jungle can be extremely rewarding and we regularly conduct random germination tests on the seed available for purchase
    • Growing carnivorous plants from seed requires a lot of patience
      • Under optimal conditions, purple pitcher seeds usually germinate within 4-8 weeks after a 4-6 week cold stratification period and may take approximately 5-7 years to reach maturity
      • It is highly recommended to do some research on specific needs prior to placing your seed order, as like with any plant you will grow from seed, we can never absolutely and conclusively guarantee germination
    • As this process is mostly a waiting game, it is recommended for the adventure carnivorous plant enthusiast looking for a challenge on the next level

        • Our instructional reference guide includes complete sowing instructions for both temperate- and non-temperate carnivorous plants (a link to this reference will be sent via e-mail on completion of your order)
        • Purple pitchers plants are temperate carnivorous plants and seed will need a 4-6 week cold stratification period to induce germination  
        • There are hundreds of carnivorous plant species, cultivars and varieties around the globe. The internet has some great resources and we highly recommend doing some research on the growing conditions required for each species  Studying this information, prior to your purchase, would be in your favour
        • Conditions differ and as with any other plant you will ever grow from seed, a range of factors may affect germination.  Naturally, we can never absolutely guarantee germination, but we can guarantee one of the most important factors with regards to germination rate:  FRESH SEEDS
          • When available the harvest date will be recorded on the seed packet
