    Just sprouted!

    I'm SUPER EXCITED since I've been giving super careful attention to my seed baby-to-be's every day, and I found that three sprouted! I sowed the nepenthes seeds on 11/4, and the VFT seeds on 11/1. They're just growing in my room in seedling trays. I thought I'd share and document this personal accomplishment! I'm really amazed at how tiny they are.

    The nepenthes sprout in the picture is of n. sumatrana, and the VFT seeds are of a mix of some colorful giant varieties.

    nepenthes:


    vft:




    I'm so glad I'm doing something right!

    Ty! I was a bit worried that they were bad seeds... but now I can be relieved!

    Lol! He's... 5x the size in that picture now. Not as cute anymore in looks and his fur grew about 4 inches long now. If only there was a way to prune him like you do plants to make him that tiny size again!

    You are so fortunate! I am like 0 for 10 when it comes to germinating Nep seeds, no matter what I have done.

    @That One Guy: Or I have a super green thumb. Actually, I'm quite surprised at the rate the nep grew at, and it seems questionable because there's only one at the moment... so at this point, I'm just hoping that my sister didn't put one of my vegetable seeds into the tray to play a trick on me.

    @Jimscott: Lol! I know! Actually iono. First time growing CPs + First time growing from seeds, but from reading about how lengthy they take, I know!! I actually drugged my seeds though, iono if that would be why. I made a 200ppm GA solution with very very dilute amount of kelp fertilizer (wanted to see if the fertilizer would give them a boost) for my sumatrana seeds and let it soak for about 1.5 days. It's probably the GA at work for the seed germination rate though. But I really can't say, because there really is only one so far. Hopefully it's not the sneaky sister...
