I have grown Sarracenias from seed in lettuce boxes of peat moss. I started the seed in January outside in Michigan. Set the fresh seed  in a container of constantly moist peatmoss and let site out all winter, in spring you will seed tiny Sarracenias. Only use rain water and nothing with lime or ph buffers. So 4 months cold worked well.

Grown from BX 363 seed (June 2014) as Hippeastrum stylosum. But looks more like a xHippeastrelia.

KenP you are in better shape than I. I only get expandable thumbnails regardless of how many snaps i attach. I would take picture first, edit if needed,  than attach from photo library.

Why dont you just use sand and gravel and some sifted loam baked in the sun mixed and hydrated for a seed mix? 
Seeds seem to love to germinate in my gravel walks over sand and loam.

Mystery Bulbs / Correcting labels

Since the PBS list does not work for iphones. I will try to ask my bulb id questions here

This lachenalia came from Terry Smale as Lachenalia stayneri. From Silverhill Seeds. In my experience many SH are labelled incorrectly as the seeds are field collected making positive id difficult. but Terry was respected as an expert so i expected he corrected his labels as the plants bloomed. Doe any one know what this plant is?

It had one pustulate leaf and a shortis spike
