    Fresh Crop of Seedlings

    A fresh crop of Sarracenia seedlings 40 days old


    Too bad they all look alike at this stage








    These two FH57 cells are Brokken’s flava rubricorpora x purp venosa Montana. Hopefully they'll turn into something nice.


    VFT 'Big Mouth' x 'Big Mouth'

    WOW! That looks really cool! Good job with that! How many varieties of Sarrs are there in those shots? Also, what are the VFTs growing in?

    Thanks Isaac - There's 19 different Sarr crosses in those photos all germinating within a few days of each other. All of the Sarrs and VFTs are growing in long fibered New Zealand sphagnum moss that I push through a 1/4 inch screen to break it up. It makes transplanting much easier.

    It is pretty tedious but I do enjoy it!

    Aloha Fred. i need to try that with the sphagnum. I am using a peat sand mix and the VFTs don't seem to like it as much. Has been better with the sarracenia seedlings, but i do tend to use a fairly thick layer of ground LFS as a top dressing of my seedling pots. maybe it is doing the same thing? New thing to try for next bunch of seeds. I am testing indoor growing in the fall -summer season. then move them outside after transplanting. Ugh cant imagine transplanting all your seedlings

    Aloha Mach! I do use a little coarse silica sand mixed in with the NZS just to give it a little weight but I have found that I get a better strike rate with NZS on most CP seeds that I germinate. Good luck with your indoor growing. It's a great way to keep things exciting year round. And don't worry; I don't transplant every seedling...just the ones that end up being worthy.

    Aloha Fred,
    how do you decide which ones to keep and which ones to let go? Also what time frame?
    I have several 4" pots full of things that look like this:
