    In my opinion, VFT seeds are annoying! I have better success with taking leaf pullings and sticking them in a jungle of live LFS and let'em sprout in fron of a window sill. One leaf spruts a colony of baby plants.

    I think seeds are really easy and give a high success rate. However, they are definately slower than divisions.

    I don't seem to be having much luck with my seedlings - about half of them croaked on me already and half of the survivors don't look good either

    Maybe not enough air circulation - I moved them to a windowsill from a tank.

    Like Jim said,, leaf pulls thrown in a baggie with some LFS will get you plants fairly quickly. But seeds are cool too...just very slow.

    Grow seedlings under the same light (ie., full sun) that the adults would grow in. VFT seedlings are really easy. They are just like their adults. Just really be careful about their size...as they are easy to overlook.
