weeds and seedlings

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 have to learn somehow

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 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

RE: weeds and seedlings

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.
