    I like that they are getting some live LFS to help them along.

    We should all try using fertilizer for our Sarra seedlings like we do with our Neps. Dr. Mellichamp who has been growing pitcher plants for a long time has some cool findings related to fertilizer. You could potentially have flowering plants in cultivation in 3 years. See http://www.bioweb.uncc.edu/Faculty/Mellichamp/index.htm

    The reason they are doing well is because they have less light than they'd expect, ironically enough. They are furiously trying to lay down new tissue so that they have more to photosynthesise with.

    Keep them like that forever and they'll eventually suffer. But if you put them out in the sun in spring, they'll mature even faster because of all the foliage they have grown indoors.

    Put them back under lights next winter, skipping their dormancy, and you'll have mature plants in 2-3 years.

    Some seedlings, all germinated back in December of last year. The two largest seedlings are form the batch shown at the beginning of this thread. Sorry Alexis, but I disagree about them being light starved. They are still under the same lights...coloration is good, the purp is short and stocky and well colored. It is fun growing Sars from seed!
