Hopefully you have a giant Brunswick County trap growing there, wouldn't that be awesome.

I had 20 out of 25 of the Brunswick County seeds germinate and at two months they are just about 1/2" diameter with nice color but none look like future giants (yet) - keeping my fingers crossed - time will tell.

I am really impressed with the speed that some of mine are growing. If they keep this up, they very well may be giants.

This is the biggest of the seedlings. It is at least 4 months old and at most 7 (my bookkeeping is lousy). This one is clearly bigger than many of my seedlings that are 18 months old. I'm looking forward to watching it grow outside where it can get its fill of bugs. It's one year birthday should be exciting!

Whatever you're doing with the seedlings is working - any tips you would like to share?
I just put my seedlings back under a humidity dome while they're still under lights for 18 hours/day. I feed maxsea every week - just a tiny drop in any open trap, I tried finely ground bloodworms but, that killed the trap almost every time I tried it.

That is all that I was doing. They are in 100% sphagnum. This one is definitely an outlier, though. The others aren't quite as big.
