Great info, thanks for sharing! One thing I want to add is that once the seeds are starting to germinate under lights, occasionally, you'll have that one dead seed that starts to mold. Be sure to get rid of it ASAP because it usually forms spores which will spread very fast and cause damping off to the surrounding healthy seedlings.
Can't stress this point enough. Also don't have the lights to close to the Potts. At least at first just makes the dampingo for worse found that out the hard at this year.
Great thread and I concur with everything that's been said / recommended with one exception. In the original post defalotus recommends the paper towel method, which I do not. In my experience that technique suffocates the seeds / provides a perfect environment for seed-killing pathogens regardless of what measures you might take to sterilize or inhibit such organisms. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure so I recommend stratifying in small baggies with a pinch of damp peat moss. Plenty of air to keep the seeds healthy and they will come up like Chia Pets! 🤘
sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
