    I can not really help you out myself.
    I planted my seed into the container that it's going to spend the rest of it's hopefully long life in. I black string that you describe sounds like it might be a root.
    I would not give up on the plant if it looks like new leaves are forming.
    As for watering I do not give mine much water at all. I give it small amounts twice a week and it's doing great.

    Wow, the pic on the left makes it look like it's growing next to snowy boulders and ice chunks, lol. Looks like it's growing great. Keep doing whatever it is you're doing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Here is a plant that is around 7-8 months old from seeds. It is growing in full sun from morning till afternoon. This keeps the plant from getting spindly. The soil is sanderlite topped with a couple inches of sand. The perlite still manages to get to the top though...maybe pure silica or course sand would be better.
    BTW, the ruler is a little over 12in long.

    also i heard cutting off or nicking a piece of the outer coating of the seed helps.
    how the heck is anyone supposed to see what they're cutting? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Yes it does help cutting off a piece of the seed leaves, but you would cut off the baby plant whilst doing so.

    Hmmm, yes I have heard that they release a chemical which inhibits the growth of other cps nearby, due to their water deprived nature. Does anyone know if this chemical prevents the growth of drosophyllum only or other cps as well. Anyhow it should be better to keep them as loners away from other cps huh...
