Ooh looks like cotton wool as a media is helping it sprout too???

It sprouted at the same time as my straight spagmoss so I wouldn't say it helps but it does make for good pictures haha @veepaisal

Lol ok.. but which is better? Spags or cotton? @demeterstouch

Honestly spag, I was just playing around to see if it would work in cotton. Spag stays wetter longer and is more efficient in the long run. @veepaisal

Hey I did some double checking and if you are worried about your seeds it wouldn't hurt them to store them in a sealed baggie in the fridge. @veepaisal

@demeterstouch well I was worried cos they’re not like the usual plant seeds we have for the outdoor garden. But if it’s ok to store them in the envelope you placed them in at room temp then I’m good! I can put them together with my other seeds in a sealed box with silica to prevent moisture from getting to them?

Haha no I actually transferred it from my other bog. I wanted to see what would happen and this way I get good photos of it! @veepaisal ♥️

I'll have to post updated pictures. They are standing more straight now so you can see them really well. @PunkyKy

Decided to add some of the mature seedlings into the cotton to see how it would go. Already able to get better photos so it's a plus in my book. #carnivorous #carnivorousplants #sundew #bogplant #boggarden #sharingiscaring #plantfriends #bog #closeup #indoor #indoorplant #indoorplants #indoorgarden #growlight #sundews #newgrowth #newgrowth #grownfromseed #seeds #germination #macro

Went ahead and sowed a few more seeds before I wrap up the rest and get them ready to go to @veepaisal. I've seen people who have great luck with growing seeds from cotton. So decided to give it a try. #carnivorous #carnivorousplants #sundew #bogplant #boggarden #sharingiscaring #plantfriends #bog #closeup #indoor #indoorplant #indoorplants #indoorgarden #growlight #sundews #newgrowth #newgrowth #grownfromseed #seeds #germination #macro
