    This is a shoebox size plastic tray. In the center there is a small 2" plastic pot with an inch of gravel in its bottom. I initially placed a couple of sprigs of live Sphagnum and a small Drosera capensis (Red) in this pot. Since then the Sphagnum has spread, so have the Drosera.

    Thumbs up

    Excellent. You must be providing very strong light, as usual, for them to get that red under artificial lighting. I like the red/green contrast as well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Dude, are you saying the Sphagnum and plants have grown out of the pot and filled the tray?
    Sweet!

    Cheers,

    Joe

    What happened was that I let a few seed from the mother plant germinate in the tray (the weediness thing) and then I harvested a few once they had grown up. Many of the plants throughout the tray have sprouted from broken roots of the seedlings that were removed.

    Nice plants but sadly I am more interested in the Sphagnum species.
