More than half of the first batch had mold inside, so today I prepared 2nd batch.

1 L media, 2g MS (somewhere between 1/2 1/3 MS)

25ml in every container.

Photo looks very dark.
I have to get another light (6500k tl)Image

You can see the seed!

Hope this time I don’t get mold inside.

Are these seeds from your own flytraps? Random pollination or are you trying for certain crosses? Good luck!

Some of my own (Akai Ryu, Green Sawtooth, Shark teeth) and some I bought.

Thanks. Will keep this topic updated.

Its been a while. But my plants did not stop growing!

Here's a update about my TC project.
First batch > all dead
Second batch! Yeah! I did it!
Not all plants survived, but some did and they grow fast.
This is what I did last couple of weeks:

Till 4 weeks ago the plants stayed in TC under light. But because I was moving away I had to remove them. This was a good time to go from in-vitro to ex-vitro. I washed all the media off and put them in soil, sealed for 4 weeks now.
From 1 I had to remove the lid because the plant was growing to high :) !

Any tips? What do do now? Can they survive sunlight already?
