Check out the coloration on my seedling! The one trap has a pinkish tinge on it! That must mean they are happy with the light they get. All the others are the same way.Image

I sowed them mid September, the 15th to be exact. So about 5 months old if you add the germination time.

Nice! I'm only growing them inside until Spring so that they don't freeze. Being so young and small I worried about them being more susceptible to that than the older, bigger plants I have.

I sowed my vft seeds on 9/24/2019. This is what they look like now. Do you know how long to wait before transplanting them into their own individual pots?

Ok...I am starting to feel like my seedlings are stunted! I also sowed mine at the beginning of October and they are so much smaller than the seedlings you guys have shared! There are very few of them who even have one trap starting to form..and it def has not opened yet. Most of them are just 2 leaves still. Is there a way to jump start their growth again?
I have them under grow lights and in peat/perlite, sitting in a tray of distilled water.

Hmmm, I’m not sure. This is my first time growing vft from seed. Mine are in a grow closet under T8 fluorescent bulbs with 15 on/9 off light schedule and humidity and temp around 80 F and 80% RH.
