    VFT seed stunted

    I have 15 germinated VFT seeds that are doing very well, and 1 germinated VFT seed that seems to be stuck or stunted. It's stayed exactly where it is, unmoving, for nearly a month now, but it's staying green and doesn't seem to be dying. Is there anything I can do? Or is it most likely a lost cause?

    Flytraplady5's signature says it best:

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Haha. Thanks NoN

    I actually took a chance and moved it a bit in the soil since it wasn't rooted, and dripped a few drops of water on it to tuck it in - someone else suggested there may be something hard under it, preventing it from taking hold, and I do have some course sand in the pot. I don't know that it'll make it, especially now that I've disturbed it, but that was the only thing I could do (as opposed to doing nothing).

    Best thing to do is watch and wait.

    Maybe a tad of Superthrive might convince it to make some roots.
