    Hey carfreak69,welcome![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] You can also find seeds at a good price on E-Bay.That's what I did [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Just type in Carnivorous Plants in the search engine and a ton of stuff will show up.Then just bid or buy VFT seeds.They usually sell 15-20 seeds from $4 something US.Good luck and have fun!

    how long did you have the seed soaking in the water before it sprouted a root? did you put it in the fridge or something for a while to immitate the winter season?
    Hmm. Shoulda looked at my seeds earlier. I harvested them in March not February. I put them in the water 3 days later on the 24th and they are still in the water. I'd guess it took them about 25 days to start sprouting.
    I used a small (2oz) condiment container with a lid and put about a " of RO water in it, tossed in the seeds, snapped the lid on it, placed it in the shade of another plant in a south facing window and pretty much forgot about it ' till the other night when I checked and saw three seeds had tiny red roots poking out of the seed coat. Tonight, all but one has sprouted and 3 are about to finish shedding the seed coat.

    Here's a pic of the seeds. Sorry about the size. I cropped a bunch off but didn't do anything else to reduce the pic size.

    nice ... even cooler that you got them to sprout in just a couple months. Don't you want to put them on the soil right away after you notice that the taproot is emerging, though?

    As long as the tap root isn't allowed to dry out it will be fine. The only problem I have had with sprouting seeds this way is that if I wait too long to plant them, I end up with etoliated, spindly plants. It seems to take them forever to become nice stout plants once that happens.
