    Thanks for the info Karl!

    Yes we have the Jiffy peat pots & pellets here too.

    How soon after germination do you begin allowing the soil to dry out? How often do you water do you flush the pot type watering or simply water so the soil get some moisture?

    Reading about the plants habitat I am guessing I should be able to keep it in my highland terrarium in an area which doesn't get a lot of direct wind/fog from the ultrasonic humidifier...

    As a successful grower of the Droso any tips you can give me will be heeded! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi,
    I put the seedling drier when the reach a sice of 3 - 5 cm, so after 3 weeks I think. Watering older plants?
    I think it is "easy" to water: when the leafs "schlappen" (in german) "hanging down", when they look like they need water, I only water my plants. So I let the soil dry out the rest of time: the plants will show.

    Heinz & Swords,
    Let me get this straight you take one pressed peat pot (Jiffy pot) and put the seed in it (nothing else just an empty pot and seed?).
    Then put it in a cupboard (or other dark place) and put another pot over it (upside down I assume) and keep the whole thing wet (put the peat pot on a tray of rainwater?) and wait for 10 days.

    Is this the method?

    Mr. Sundew,

    What Heinz is refering to are the compressed peat pellets made by Jiffy. These look a bit like a miniature hocky puck. You place them in water and they expand to about 3" high. There is a small depression in them where you can place the seed and then follow along with his method.

    Heinz,

    Thanks for sharing your method, it gives me new ideas to try [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Jiffy : thats what they are. Often sold here so get the seedling better started: you do not have to replace them to soon. And the Drosos do not already like to be disturb at their roots , I find out after lots of trying.

    Sharing is the best way. Sometimes I may have a question and another one can help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
