    Thanks! I'm pretty hyped! I've never grown a Drosophyllum before. I just hope I didn't contaminate it during replating.

    Way cool! Excellent photo of how they sprout with the seedling sprouting out of the seed first and then forming the root, the same way they sprout in soil. I have yet to be able to snap a good shot of that process. Your photo demonstrates the importance of not disturbing the seedling too soon after germination, or being very careful in doing so, as that root is very fragile at this point and can break off with the slightest touch. It also can take a few days for the root to find its way down into the soil and get established.

    Could you post that photo on the sundew forum as well, for those looking specifically for info on Drosos? I have not seen photos of Drosophyllum seed in tissue culture before, nice job!

    Thanks, DJ! Once the root started to poke out, it took off! If you check on it twice over the course of several hours, you can notice some growth. It's crazy. It's funny how they can take so long to germinate, but once they do, they grow so quickly.

    As for not snapping the root, I had them on different media when they germinated, and wanted to move them, but I was worried about that, so I was super careful. That's why the root isn't shoved into the gel. I didn't want the resistance to snap it, when it can just bury itself in the coming weeks. The inside of the jar should be near 90-100 humidity, which should keep the exposed root happy, and the base of the plant is stuck in the gel a little bit, so it does have some support.

    I'm just hoping that I didn't introduce any contaminants while replating this seedling and the other un-germinated droso seed that was in the same jar. As of right now, it still looks good, though.

    Also, sure! I'd be happy to post it in the sundew forum. I was actually considering making a follow-along thread so people could track the progress of this droso, from Day 1.

    Thanks, again!
