    The VFTs I buy and the one in my other thread is just pure moss peat.

    Alrighty, I planted my seeds. I started with a 4" pot, with some coffee filters lining the very bottom. I proceeded with a 50/50 mix at the bottom half and gradually moved to almost 100% peat at the top. I poured some distilled water through it to moisten it, and then put my four tiny seeds (dang they are small) onto the top and dropped a drop of water on top of them for safe measures.

    I covered it with a plastic bag with holes in it to help retain moisture.

    I guess all there is now to do is wait...about how long till I will be able to see activity?

    Also, I'm waiting till dormancy to move my other plants to a large pot...I can't let all this soil go to waste.

    Pur peat works, but rotting is more likely with pur peat.

    Sounds like you are doing everything pretty well! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    You should get something in about six weeks!

    Good luck!

    I know, I know. I feel the exact same way with my seeds that I planted two and a half weeks ago. ONLY TWO AND A HALF MORE WEEKS TO GO FOR ME! WOOHOO!!! LOL! Well, your time will come. Don't worry. Just be patient, give them TLC, and... "Life will find a way."

    P.S. Check out my post entitled "My vft seedling journal" for continuous updates on the seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Whoops... my big error for the day. It's not six weeks. It's 2-3 weeks. I found that out in the chatroom just now. STUPID MEEEE!!! ***hits head incessantly*** Where the HECK did I get "six weeks"?!

    *gives FlyTrapgirl some aspirin and a pillow*

    Don't feel bad, I'm sure the seeds weren't going to listen to you anyways. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
