The look very healthy there! Nice growing!

Just as a note for anyone trying to grow D. filiformis indoors-
When I first tried growing this spcs. indoors, I didn't realize how much they needed to be fed in order to continue growth. Lost about 95% of my seeds until I brought some outside (out of desperation since I figured I would lose them all) and they were able to catch a few gnats. Then the growth took off!
