    D, ordensis seedlings question

    Hi All,
    Back in (I think) October Homer distributed some ordensis seeds.I have two tiny seedlings that haven't done much since sprouting.They are on a heat pad under a clear shoebox in the basement.The air temp in is the 90 dgree range and I have them covered with a plastic bag to keep the humidity in. Should I try and harden them off? Is the lack of air movement causing them to stay so small? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Yes, I would harden them off a bit.

    Then I would feed them tiny bits of bloodworm and keep a close watch for any fungus growth of undigested food (remove it before this happens).

    Drosera seedling growth stall is usually overcome by feeding the suckers.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Mine, through a hobbyist from the same source, in essentially the same condition as Mark's is also in a holding pattern (heated fishtank). I've fed the plants pulverized bloodworms. I'd like to know when it will look whitish and fuzzy.
