    Anyway -- normally, for non-CP use, I use disposeable aluminum pans with plastic covers for seed germination -- kind of like the round tins you get chinese food lunch specials in. I'd like to do this for the sundews, too, 'cause they're cheap and conveniently sized, but I was wondering if there'd be any problems with the aluminum, and the possible formation of any salts in an acid environment.

    Any input you guys have would be appreciated, thanks.
    Just out of curiosity, how long exactly did it take you to recieve your order?
