    All I did was take an old filter tip dispenser that has 3 parts to it - an inner container that has 100 holes in it; an outer container, which acts as the "open tray", and a cover. I put my soil mix in, added seeds, and then deionized water. I sealed it up and placed it at a window sill. they germinated and I kept them covered for a couple more weeks. Then I took them home and began the process of acclimating them tobeing opened up to the air. I erxperienced no mold whatsoever. Perhaps I was just lucky.

    Do you think I could just put them in a pot of 2 parts sand and one part peat and stick them outside in full sun with high humidity? The humidity has been skyrocketing here lately. Right now it's 82%.

    Oh, I guess that means that they don't like being waterlogged. Or.....wet...at...all.. I'm thinking BIG drainage holes then? And covered up during a lot of rain? Got it. Thanks for the help.....again...lol

    they like well drained soil, but what i meant is that heavy rains can destroy them! rain has destroyed several batches of newely-germinated seed of mine, then i learned to grow them inside for awhile [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I speak from experience: you Don't want your seedlings in the kind of rains storms we had last month. They uprooted several Droseras and now I have "Sundew Surprise." My Byblis seedlings haven't gotten outside. They have been window sill bound.

    Not fun seeing painstakingly germinated seedlings floating and migrating. But then again, that was my own shortsighted fault in not anticipating my lack of drainage capabilities.
