    I have an under tank heater that I originally got for my bird eater, but since it can't be used on plastic I might place it close to the seeds and see what happens.

    You can try a local hydroponics store. They are usually around $25-30 without a thermostat and can bring the temp 10F above room temp.

    Some of the older sprouts are starting to show signs of their first true leaves.


    While other sprouts are totally lost, not knowing which way is down. The root tips are pointing up at this point.

    What different substances did you use in the mix of medium you created to sow the seeds in? I quickly skimmed through all of the pages, didn't see it mentioned. Maybe I missed it.

    The attenboroughii sprouts are growing quickly.

    20 days after germination, some of them are already showing signs of their first pitchers:



    How's everyone else's doing?
