    Yes, one of them was yours.
    If they don't like a lot of light, do you think I'd just be able to put a shelf aboug 6-8" below my other one (under my six T5s) and that'd be enough light for them? I only have two south-facing windows, and one has a nep in it already. The other one is above a computer desk and would be hard to get to to spy on them. (These are glass block windows where I have to stand on stuff to get up to their height).

    I was thinking of getting this, but it sounds like I may not have to. (Sorry if I already posted that link earlier; I am so tired.)

    EDIT: Oh, and if they don't like a lot of light, does that mean I shouldn't have started my other sundews out under all those T5s for 16 hours a day? Heck. Now I'll never know if light killed them or the algae killed them. Either way, R.I.P. (Rest In Peat)

    Hey man, forget about buying the lights. I have found that one spiral 100 watt bulb (actually 26) keeps things growing in my prop chamber no problem. I just have aluminum foil over every big of it. I even have a flap of the stuff in front (which I change regularly as holes form in the sheet, but that's beside the point.) The most expensive part of growing cps IMHO should be your distiller or RO unit. I personally have a distiller...it cost $10 more than that light fixture...and it's made well over 800 gallons.

    Sow them in a plastic bag. That way you don't need to keep them watered. Just put it on that windowsill, and wait for nature to take its course. IMHO (again) you should sow each pack in a separate pot...so you have better chances of getting results.

    Well, algae can't really kill them once they've sprouted. But fungas gnats are your biggest enemy IMHO (AGAIN!) Seeds grown in bright light tend to develop slowly.
