    Sarracenia, 9 weeks old photo

    SarhybridsRSx3Feb09

    Sarracenia are fun to grow from seed. Hybrid seedlings always seem to grow faster for me than the pure species. However, I was surprised how big these 9-week-old seedlings have gotten. They are from my own plant, harvested in fall, chilled, and then warmed up about the first week of December. You can see a pitcher in the back right that is almost 3 inches tall!!! Some of them are already catching fungus gnats.

    That's very good! Are you keeping them in a normal spring setting, or some type of 24 hour photo period system like some people speak of?
    Keep up the good work

    My two year-old seedlings aren't that big.

    I'm trying out the lowland system, but with 14 hr days, so they grow with my lowland neps.

    It'd be kinda cool to see how fast we can push seedlings to maturity - maybe like a race. I think osmocote pellets would make the process even faster. The nurseries around here use them.

    Nice plants, Woodnative!

    Thanks all! They are under regular cw fluorescent lights, 16 hour photoperiod.
    They are growing in a mixture of peat, sand, perlite, and some native acidic soil obtained under an old pine tree.
    When seedlings begin to stagnate, replanting them into fresh media sometims "jump starts" them.

    Very cute.
