the amount of chlorine in bleach varies depending on the time of the year. Very possible to end up with more active ingredient or less just between winter to summer. Was testing Trichloroisocyanuric acid (swimming pool chlorinating granules). At 1/8 tsp per cup and it seems to have not kill the VFT flower stalks and gave me reasonable disinfection using suggested bleach soak and rinse times...
have not tried nep seeds yet.
In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com
I got seeds for the same batch. They arrived in the mail a month and a half after he sent them out. Needless to say, nothing happened.
I have over 50 seedlings from kula myself. Placed in terrarium with high humidity and 2 banks of t8 lights on 16 hrs a day. More keep sprouting too. Sewn on milled lfs. I have an ultra sonic humidifier piped in and I occasionally will fog the tank. It's always on to keep humidity up, but I like the fog look sometimes so I ramp it up to fill the tank. And I have a pc fan inside running at all times.
Seed started germinating about 3 months or so after I planted. I planted in november 2011 they started in feb-March 2012
and yes that pot was over seeded. I will pay the consequences in months to come....
Also dunno about LL conditions for this one to germinate. I am seeing the best germinating where temps are in the 80s. In the petiolaris sundew and sarracenia germination chambers where temps reach over 100 F I am not seeing any germination. Guessing max temp might be in the mid 90s if i had to guess above that dead seeds.

My biggest batch of these were from seeds I planted because nobody claimed them in the SASE I did...they were 2 months old....almost all came up...oh dear.
Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
