So many seedlings!

I let all nearly all of my typical Venus Fly Traps flower and produce seed this year. I didn't realize how much seed this would produce! I didn't actually hand count it, but I had to have somewhere around 2000 seeds. I couldn't decide what to do with all of the Dionaea muscipula seed that I harvested this summer. I sowed about half of it immediately and put it in my terrarium. Those seedlings look great now. I considered sending some of it to the International Carnivorous Plant Society seed bank, but they typically have a ton of Dionaea seed. I thought about giving it away, but I never advertised it. In the end, I decided to sow it as well. Now I have what I would guess to be well over a thousand seedlings (I'd say 90% of the seed germinated) that I planted at various times. Below are some photos of the ones I planted last: In the above photo, I like how they look like they're wearling little black hats because of the seed pods on them. Above is one of the more quickly growing seedlings. All of the little green specks are seedlings! There are a few seedlings there huh?
