  1. Thanks, I can still see the vast majority of the seeds (those that are not too small of course) on top of the medium. They also get a drop in temps at night as I do keep the fan running and most heat sources are timed to shut off with the lights besides 1 to keep it at a reasonable temp. They were stratified exactly to instructions I've found on multiple sources and after much advice received and research, but the other seeds I've recently sown are doing better than these by miles. I understand Ceph seeds will take their own time, but it's been since mid-April and only 2 VFT Seeds have
  2. Oh, wow. I definitely don't plan on giving up, but will try to keep my patience (and keep in mind that my high electricity bill will pay off with seedlings soon.) Perhaps I'll put in a separate pot with some other plant that can grow in similar conditions just to have something green in there in the meantime.... maybe a bonsai? I'm not sure what else can co-habitate with them.
  3. I might, though some seeds are so small I cannot even see them in the wet medium. I may lose a few seeds by removing the top layer, but if it's worth saving the rest I may just try that.
  4. Thanks for the input! Yes, I've grown several of Dionaea the same way I started these out just fine with no problems in germinating... Plus, it wasn't until about 1 1/2 weeks ago that I added the light dusting as I read from other forum posts on a few different forums that it may be necessary to help them push their roots into the medium and to help maintain humidity near the seeds, but I see your point. Do you think if I dusted them off a bit that it would improve, though, knowing that they had been completely left undusted for several weeks beforehand? I do appreciate the response.
  5. Greetings,Your help or advice is greatly appreciated as this carnivorous plant parent is in pain. As I've begun my second set of carnivorous plants, I requested and received (with much difficulty during the process) over 200+ seeds of 6 different species from the Carnivorous Plant Society. Due to the sheer volume of seeds I received, I thought certainly by now at least some would have germinated in similar conditions as the other carnivorous plants I'd successfully grown first. However, it has been 7-10 weeks (depending on the species, plus some obviously required different stratification leng

  7. So, I have published a page on my personal site with the graphs (could not upload the data files unfortunately) along with some photos on the bottom of a few of the traps as they are recently. You can either view the images attached for just the charts or go to https://sites.google.com/view/jessica-teeters/vfts . I hope this helps!
  8. When i click on one it seems to automatically download... perhaps that's the problem, security settings? Is anyone else experiencing this issue? If so, how should I share these or what file types are supported?
  9. Took it upon myself to carefully track detailed information on how Venus Fly Traps grow from seed as seedlings since it seemed like many do not grow from seed and little about their growth at those stages is documented (believe me, I spent hours trying to find info on this). The parameters are based on watering amount (I've made up my own metrics for this based on the amount and different methods of watering per week), # of traps (.5 meaning a trap is either dying off or ailing), height, and width. This may not be typical for all, but you can find individual plant data as well as their corre
  10. Certainly, here's a link to the pictures on a temporary hidden page on one of my personal sites for reference: https://sites.google.com/view/jessica-teeters/vfts

  12. Greetings All, Starting again on this forum like a few others are (unfortunately all of my posts & my account were gone, but we're moving onward!) I hope everyone gets back on their feet alright after the data loss upset. Also, my apologies; if this is not in the right place feel free to let me know and I will happily move or revise. However, I have perused and perused posts for hours trying to figure this out... So, before I get to it I will let you know the conditions which my VFT's are currently experiencing: I have about 12 VFT's grown from seed. They are 8 months old an

So, before I get to the mystery itself I will let you know the conditions which my VFT's are currently experiencing: I have about 12 VFT's grown from seed. They are 8 months old and about only 4 mm tall/wide, but some with anywhere between a few and up to 15 traps on each
