Venus fly trap growth status

by Avo082 » Mon Jan 09, 2017 2:15 pm

Hi all. I am a new grower and i have started these Venus fly traps from seed. They have been growing for a few months now and here is where I am at. I have attached a few photos. Do they look healthy? All i am using is moss for the growth medium. Do i need to change it at some point? How long till they fill the pot?

They look great! You wont have to change the moss unless it gets rot, fungus, or algae - some growers use only sphagnum moss for even adult plants. From seed it takes vfts 3-5 years to be mature, if you're looking to fill a pot buying adult plants is the way to go.

Woah, that's neat, never seed red seedlings actually.

Welcome to the forum!

You may be a new grower but judging from your photos, you're doing everything right.

That's a challenging way to get started.

Good growing,
Mike
