Excellent pics and results, my one remaining seedling and last years plant have started to grow again now we are having some warmer weather. They're outside in a propagator, I think I may have to devise a fly screen as I can imagine the plants been victims of their own success, I have read that the dead insects can cause fungal outbreaks, especially I would think when the weather cools off and lower light
Yes this is the largest plant. All 4 are developing leaves now, though the super tall white one is being extremely slow about it (I'm assuming it's lacking energy due to the white stem, but there's green starting to show under the seed coat.)
Progress update: The super tall and slow one developed damp-off after 3 months (!) so I cut it off, soaked it in GA3, and am attempting to reroot in perlite. I doubt it will work (especially after inspecting the picture I took today and it appearing that one of the cotyledons is rotting) but I have nothing to lose. Of the remaining three plants, I traded one to a local grower and potted up the other two. The largest is FINALLY freeing itself from the seed coat, having repeatedly developed leaves trapped under previous leaves that were also trapped. The other two did not have that problem.
Well my largest plant is still doing fine. I traded one of the smaller ones to a local grower, and planted the other one. Unfortunately that one has been looking rather dehydrated since yesterday morning (and had an odd yellowish color to the leaves for quite a while before that) so I'm suspecting a root problem. I dumped some GA3 on it last night as a last ditch effort to save it, but I'm not optimistic. I think the bottom of the peat pot I started it in may have stayed too wet - I do recall one of the roots at the bottom being a bit brown rather than white when I transplanted it, and I probably should have cut that part off.
My largest seedling is still alive, though it's not quite as big as yours. I've been struggling to figure out how much these actually need to be watered. The guy I traded my other seedling to said he's only watered it twice in a month and a half which amazes me. I was doing it every other day, and transitioned to every 4 days, but should probably go even lower. It's very difficult to determine how much moisture such large pots can hold.
Yeah it can be tricky, think I'm watering about once a week with about half inch of water in the saucer , so watered from below, the larger plants media is really dry on top as its in such a large pot ( clay) the small seedling has its media kept moister, I water more regularly if its really hot and less when cooler
Well I finally picked all the carnage off the large plant and it certainly is an effective killer, a wasp is no match for the resin on one of these. The side I showed in the pic was actually far cleaner than the other ,a stack of hover flies and four wasps , not bad for a little chap but it was starting to look messy to me
A couple of update pics , both plants lost the main growing points, think it was due to a frosty night. They should start to grow quicker if the weather ever warms up, not really grown over winter last years seedling
Well I did manage to keep my plant alive over the winter. I lost my Byblis lamellata and one of my Drosophyllum, but everything else pulled through. I even had flowers on my Roridula gorgonias on the first day of spring, before removing the plants from winter storage.
