    Peat Pots

    I planted some Devil Claw seeds in peat pots and I have a sprout from one of my seeds. When does it produce leaves? All I see is a stem but no leaves and the stem is white.

    They are supposed to have two oval cotyledons upon germination. You either got something else to germinate or your seedling is likely deformed or damaged.

    What should I do with that seedling because I'm thinking it is deformed or damaged? Just asking.

    Be wary of peat pots as they can contain lime to stabilise the pH of the peat. As I'm sure you are aware, most carnivorous plants dislike lime.

    Thanks and it doesn't seem to be affecting my Devil Claws.
