That's too bad, Dave. My experience with this project is that it does great mounted on a coconut husk. It doesn't mind the heat and bare roots on the mount are fine. Mine would probably grow faster...

For sure I agree that it can't be in the dark. He was specifically referring to moving flasks to brighter light to induce more growth. Does that make sense? Maybe I'm describing it wrong.
