Excellent Dorchid! I still have seen no growth from my seeds, but still hopeful!

When did you sow? I canít remember what youíre using for sub...was it straight sphag? Should work fine. They can take up to a month or longer but these should pop in a couple/three weeks or so. The seed is good as all the capensis sprouting in the top left pot in the above pic were volunteer from a flower spike I didnít harvest. Fingers crossed and let me know if you need more seed!

Yes, straight sphagnum, kept in tray method with RO water. Ummm... it was first week in December when I planted them. Well, sprinkled them. Nothing so far. I even got my little magnifying glass out to look, but the sphag is developing some pretty green coloring.

PS Maybe I should cover the top with a clear glass or saran wrap?

Hmmm. They like a lot of rh, so covering the top could definitely help. You might track down some peat and give it a try as well.

Yes! Along with a funny story. So I started this venture to give my daughter a fun Christmas gift. I'd already purchased two sundews and a Venus flytrap for her, a grow light, and three cute little pots.

Then I read that the Venus flytrap goes dormant in winter. My daughter is most talented, but not at growing plants. So I kept back the Venus flytrap (because I know my plant stuff, right?) and was going to babysit it through dormancy for her. I moved some stuff around, and put some of the sphag I'd planted your seeds in into the third pot.

Fast forward... she's got baby sundews coming up all over the pot that I'd seeded, plus her two other sundews were starting to flower. Can't find a picture of the babies, but I'll have her send me a new one and post it here.

Meanwhile, I keep waiting for the Venus flytrap to break dormancy. Then she sends me this picture...



And says Mom! It looks like there's a Venus flytrap growing up under my sundew! Whoops!! Silly me got the pots confused and planted one of the sundews over the top of the dormant flytrap. And I was carefully taking care of a pot of nothing but sphag.

Yes, my venture into carnivorous plants has been quite entertaining so far.
