Flytrap or something else - what sprouted?

I bought some flytrap seeds on eBay to grow for my kids - we thought it would be neat.

I placed the seeds in a bed of Better-Gro Premium Grade Orchid Moss from either HD or Lowes.

The pictures below show what sprouted.

Is this the moss growing or are these actually venus flytrap seedlings? They don't resemble the sprout pictures I've seen on the web, but since this is my first time I have no idea what is growing.

If it isn't a flytrap, we'll have to start again with new seeds, but I'd still be curious to know what is growing.

Not a flytrap. Not sure what it is but it's NOT a VFT. Try again.
