I forget which one this was as I lost the place where I repotted each one.

1 of the 3 plants that survived in just sand and some pine needles. This was mostly due to not enough watering.

Seedling sure do take some time to grow! But it's worth it. Thanks!

Thanks guys!

Some more updates:

The baby typicals in the drainless pot are now old enough to flower. Since that photo was taken one of them sent up a stalk.

Steve's seedlings will propably be flowering for the first time. If so, I will send you back a good chunk of the seeds just for fun :) (I'll let you know what I crossed them with)

I'm disappointed that I made the pine needle mix to heavy on the sandy side and it drains too well. If I come across some needles in the forest, I'll collect them and soak them and then blender them :)

Anyway, you CAN grow VFTs WITHOUT peat moss! YAY! Now it's just to make a mix that makes them grow as well as peat.
