    @Fred P. : WOW, those are looking good! Did you mist the seedlings (prior to taking that photo)?

    hey fred i was wondering what your watering technique is. Also how do you go about hardening them off when you move them outside.

    Yes, I did just water them before I snapped the photo.

    I simply water/mist them once a day with RO water. They are not standing in water because I believe watering them daily and letting it drain off allows more oxygen to the roots. As far as hardening them off, I really don't. When it's sunny outside and higher than 62 degrees, I just set them out on the patio in direct sun but the tray has to have enough water in it at that point so they don't run the risk of drying out. It hasn't been too warm or sunny here lately so they've just been under lights 24/7. It's supposed to be sunny and 72 this weekend though so they will be going outside.

    I only had one complete failure and that was AH14 (in the middle/left of the 3rd photo). This was an ((Alata x Leuco) x Flava rubricorpora) x 'Cobra Nest'. Not sure why but not even a single seed germinated. That was one out of 60+ crosses. It happens sometimes.

    I also used a packet of Pyro's seed this year, although I started a lot later than the rest of you. At last count, I have 18 seedlings that have germinated--more seem to pop up every time I count. I'm very close to a 50% germination rate. In some respects, I feel like I'm being overrun by Triffids. I have been transplanting them as soon as the first pitcher leaf develops. My problem right now is finding room for all the transplanted seedlings.
