my babies (progress)
In the beginning of april my seeds arrived ,they were Sarracenia flava 'Maxima' ,Drosera capensis and VFT.
The only medium I had available at the time was peat so I decided to chance it and sow them in that.I devided each of the packages in 2 parts and sown the first batch (the sarracenia I put in the fridge).5 days later I put the other seeds in their pots(again the sarrs in the fridge) and when I checked the first pots I found there was already some change in the first batch of sundews.
The second pot of sundews took like forever to show the first greenery(3 weeks while it took the first seeds just 5 days) even though they were both kept in front of the same window. Now that the first batch has grown a first real leaf I must ask ;is it normal that the first D.capensis leaves are roundish?
Even though you can hardly see the first leaf(best way to see it is to make a picture with a zoom)) what I can see very well is the little drops spreading out from the leaf so I guess they feel very happy.
When I did my daily inspection round today I found the first green point in my VFT pot that sits in front of the window, the one standing outside isn't doing anything yet(but these are 5 days younger so I'll see what happens next).
My first batch of Sarrs I took out of the fridge after 2 weeks, the other pot is still there(but I changed the medium by putting sphagnum in the mixture) and I'll give it another 2 weeks before I take them out.
Just to let you guys know what a CP newbie is up to.
