    That looks like a lot of algae / moss growth on the peat in two weeks... are you watering with a nutrient solution?

    No, with demineralized water. The algae grow faster because i keep the seedlings at 90RH%. But its harmless to the plants.

    Update

    Some pictures i took this afternoon.
    I wanted to show theses lil seedlings with their sealed traps. Its food time !!

    The traps are 1/4 inch long, and have 3.5 months old I can feel the traps closing faster and stronger each time i feed them.

    Pretty cool

    You can see the little traps eating with enzymes

    Wow! I'm already impressed by their size. Great growing! I can't wait to see them in a few more months. It's been nearly 4 months since they were sown and they're already much larger than I'd expect them to be.

    This is making me want to attempt to sow some seeds! I cut my flower stalks though. So, basically, you just spread the seeds across what looks to be orchid grade LFS under bright light, warm conditions and high humidity? Just trying to understand the basics of what you did there. Nice going, they look great!

    Go ahead ! The seedlings you see in the pictures are from seeds donated by mmlr38 for my challenge. i suggest you to have a look to his website, you will find great stuff.
    and by the way, tell him he have to sell plants/seeds in canada, im tired to order from europe

    And for me, the best way to sprout vft seeds, its under a plastic dome, with a tiny ventilation hole, with full sun, in 100% long fibers sphagnum moss. All my seeds germinate almost the same 2-3 days, when the temperature reach 30-35C into the dome with full sun on them. Of course 80-100%RH will help.
