If I remember correctly, Utricularia seeds need to be planted very quickly after going to seed as they do not in general tolerate drying out very well (and many cannot dry out at all, like the seeds of the epiphytic Utricularia (If my memory serves me right) or they quickly become non-viable. I remember reading in several places that the aquatics and semiaquatics can be germinated by placing them in a petri dish with RO or distilled water and then transferred once they have some size and the terrestrials can be dusted onto a sterile fine peat mixture.

Also most Utricularia seeds cannot be stored for any real lengths of time (some only days). If you are thinking about purchasing seeds, there is a good chance they won't be viable unless they are very fresh and shipped from somewhere very close.

Thank you Ed. That makes a lot of sense. I found some seeds on eBay but I will not waste my money. Thanks again!
