weeds and seedlings

mattmega4(9)June 20, 2010

So my VFT and Sundew are flowering..and soon they'll be dropping seed..and I know all the stuff about beginners shouldn't grow seeds because its hard..they arent as forgiving at mistakes..and its a slow less rewarding process...but i want to try it..you have to learn somehow

ANYWAYS

i have noticed over the two years that i've been growing my CPs that i get weeds ..and when i see them i always pluck them out..im lucky because the weeds are tiny compared to the CPs...but if im going to be growing seedlings..its going to be hard to pluck a weed when i have a seedling right next to it that is the same size...and super sensitive

so what do you recommend for dealing with this situation or improving it or whatnot

If I'm understanding you right then you should take a shish kabob skewer or something similar and place it between the plants and apply downward pressure before pulling the weed.
I use 2 K-bobs to propagate sundews.
