Also, great seedlings!
Thanks! I am sooo happy to see so many sprouting!
As for the Darlingtonia, so far several have the seed leaves, no carnivorous ones yet, though most are just emerging from the seed. I have SEVERAL pots that have been seeded, and I decided to take one of the smaller ones and put it out with my other CPs today, as one of my seedlings hitchhiked into one of my VFT pots and has been growing out there from the start. Right now, our temps are between 85-55 as a total range, though it's staying mostly in the mid-upper 70's during the day, and falling into mid 60's at night. Humidity has been super high here for this time of year too, because of all the rain, and the ones inside seem to be doing better without a humidity dome than they did with it.
I do keep them all bottom-watered, and I mist them with distilled water 2-3 times/day, pretty much whenever I stop to just look at 'em. I have one pot that seems to have a seedling explosion: there are seedlings in groups that seem to have sprouted all at once!
I also have a window planter (it's indoors, with a self-watering tray built in) that's seeded, and I put most of the stratified seeds in it. I seeded it about a week ago, and already have several germinating! I'm really surprised, but the ones in the other pot that is sprouting all over the place is from the same group of (stratified) seeds. The non-stratified ones took about 4-5 weeks to start germinating, so I had really expected a similar wait for the stratified ones.
I have been amazed at how well my phone captures these little guys! It does a better job than my regular digital camera!
If you'd like, I'd be happy to post pics as they get bigger. It's definitely fun to see how much they change as they get bigger!
