    Yes, congratulations! Don't change anything, don't mess with it, just let it do its thing.

    Sashoke: That little white spot you see at the tip of the seed about center of the red circle, that is coming out of the seed.

    I think I got a couple to sprout. And a few Byblis. Now if I could just get them out of the seedling stage.

    The only thing I've changed since this thread has started is added air flow spraying it to keep ithe surface wet .

    @Pearldiver I plan on introducing springtails to my seedling platters once the plants get their first carnivorous leaves. This way the plants will feed slowly and mold will also be eaten by springtails. If there is enough interest, I can do a how to on springtail cultures, and possible even trade some springtails for random plants or seeds.

    More germination!

    Here's the current germination chamber for the new drosos in my party. The red water is from the lava rock, the TDS remains fairly low after soaking (about 50 after 12 hours in RO water) but it leaves a red sediment. I swear it's not a ritualistic blood thing.

    The seedling is still "white" very center between two perlites and near soil chasm.

    Here's another guy very center on the tan sphagnum moss. Just germinated!

    Last but not least, an update on the first seedling growing some root hairs that look kinda nasty in the low quality picture.
