    I got some VFT seeds today. I put some seeds with my large VFT Pot with a few mature VFTs in it and I got some sitting is some cups of water, one that is mixed with the plants water, and two that are filled with RO water. BTW, is it OK/better for the seeds to sink into the water?

    I had best success with seeds that were sunken. It's hard to get some of them to stop coming up, but you have to just keep pushing them. Gently holding them under for about 30 seconds with tweezers seemed to help.
