    Sphagnum appreciates some air circulation, and the condensation on the plastic blocks out a lot of the light. Do you have some sort of enclosure to go with your lights? Even a small fish tank with those T5s would be a good place to grow it in provided you take measures to avoid having it overheat. I'm going to say that trying to grow Sphagnum (or anything, for that matter) in a bag long-term will not give you happy results.

    That should be fine actually, it's only an issue long-term, although the whole bag nonsense is unnecessary with a good terrarium (hint hint). Just keep that thing OUT of direct sunlight, and open it up sometimes to refresh the air (beware of mold, though). Putting the bag with seeds under your T5s would be nice.

    I think I'll be going home like every two weeks... so I hope its an okay system... like while I'm home I'll open the baggie to let in fresh air.

    The only time I've ever propagated nepenthes from seed was when I purchased some inermis seeds off ebay a few years ago. I used dead and live sphagnum along with perlite. Although the seeds took a few months to grow I had good results.
