So here's my grow room :D The temps are in the mid 70's in the day, thanks to the lights I'm using, and it drops to the low 60's. Please excuse the debris, I've been a bit busy here. :roll: Sorry about the picture quality...I don't have the best camera.

Wow it’s like a mad scientists laboratory with those lights and trays with domes haha I love it 8-) great to see you have a heli, they aren’t my specialty but seems they do well growing alongside Nepenthes. Will give them a try this year I think. My space gets messy too, esp after reporting

glad you started this thread, will give you even greater appreciation for the progress your plants make over the years! :mrgreen:

Thanks!
Lol I've accumulated a lot of lights and take out containers over the years :D
So far so good with the heli, I think keeping the roots cool and not overly soaked is pretty important.

Totally! I might not have too many frequent updates, but I can't wait to see some of my new plants take off!

Nice seedlings. I've got some sowed drosera spatulata seeds so on my windowsill. Too bad they haven't done anything in about 10 months :roll:

Maybe its a bit too cold for them? My burmanni didn't sprout until after I started using a heating pad.

That could be a factor. I planted them last summer. They didn't sprout through the warm months, then winter arrived. So maybe it prolonged the germination. It's spring now, and the container they're in easily gets above 80 degrees in the middle of the day, so they might sprout sometime this season.

After about four months I started to think that the seeds weren't very fresh. Usually most easy growing sundews can sprout pretty quickly, but this may just be my lucky experiences with seeds in the past.
