    ya I think Ill nee to get some better moss... the stuff I just used is really cheap and I had to rinse it over ten times before the water wasn't brown! I think it'll work for now until I get my hands on some good quality moss. Thanks again for the advice now I just have to wait and see if the humidity will increase...

    It helps that you have a small gap in the terrarium between the tray and the glass. If you had it on all sides a breeze could potentially go through the setup, although I'm not sure that that is what you want.

    Tanu, it normally would be good for ventilation but I keep it sealed off pretty tight to raise the temp. Here's another pic back a little further with most of the aluminum foil attached. It is some what of a temporary setup/kind of ghetto at the moment but it works.



    As for the humidity I appear to have peaked out around 84%. An interesting thing though, the accurite humidity/temp gauge resting on the sphagnum at the bottom has a temp reading of 86F. If you look at the sensor that is just 3 inches above it I am getting a reading of 95F. The air gauge is actually a pretty hardcore unit so I trust it much more but still not sure of the discrepancy. It was also cool to see the temp drop by about a degree in the minute or so I had the aluminum foil back to take the picture.

    To the left of my mini "hot house" is a tray growing live sphagnum. There are two 20x10 trays of sphag growing on the shelf above as well. It's kind of cool that in the "hot house" with aluminum foil I am hitting 95 degrees. On the shelf above that with no aluminum foil I am hitting 86 degrees. And finally the air temperature in the closet is 76 degrees. It's interesting to see how much each variable effects the setup.

    sprouting petiolaris seed

    Since I last made a post in this thread I have been trying to germinate seed for both D. derbyensis and D. broomensis. I planted 8 - 10 of the derbyensis seeds and got one sprout. Of the 10 or so of the broomensis seeds I got nothing. In the past I have gotten similar germination rates with petiolaris seed so the question is: do I fail due to inadequate methods of cultivation or are the seeds just low in viability? I place the seed on top of long-fiber sphagnum moss that has been topped with grated lfs and then is put in a watering tray, which is not allowed to dry out. Anybody have a better, more effective method? I wonder if smoke treatment, heat striation or GA3 treatment would make a difference?

    Maybe a better question is - has anyone out there had success sprouting petiolaris seed and, if so, how did you do it and what species did you sprout?

    I sent an email to Michal over at LabFlyTrap. He's the guy I ordered the entire complex from so he has a lot of experience. He is a tissue culture guy but I'm sure he will know if there are any special requirements for germination. I linked this thread in the email so if he replies to me and not on here I'll relay the information
