Carnivorous Plants forum: Starting VFT From Seed Question

(Referring yo Venus fly trap seeds) To summarize the question, is it best to sow seeds directly into the destination pot/medium, or may they be sown into a Jiffy Peat Puck, then transplanted into destination pot/medium at a later date once they have successfully germinated? I would normally enjoy testing both methods and discovering the answer along the way, but I only have a limited amount of seeds for this project. Thank you kindly for your wisdom.

*Edit* I did not consider that the pucks may have added fertilizer in them. If this is the case then I should not be considering this method. How do VFT seedlings do with transplanting? Does anyone have experience with new seedlings being moved around?

They seem to transplant fine from what I've read. People tend to start them in pots by the dozens and transplant once a certain size. Read this:
