I just checked my "grow box" today where the VFT seeds are planted and found out that most of the seeds have sprouted!! A couple is quite big, I can tell 2 individual leafs on 4 of the new seedlings, my camera won't focus on the tiny seedlings and my macro lens broke a few month back so there will be no pics yet... I got my seeds from Ebay, planted at March 3rd and they sprouted before a month! really excited about that! Hopefully they grow into big healthy plants!
P.S: Cultivar species are: Black Pearl, DCXL, B52, Viridis!
Congrats! I remember the excitement I had when my first VFT seeds sprouted with success as well so I can imagine that you also can't wait to see what varieties come from the seeds too Hope you get some interesting traits!
I didn't know the BP or the viridis before this either, I guess I'll have to wait to find out what they really look like
I looked them up on cpfinder, and BP just looks like a low laying flytrap with nice coloration but not as dark as its name suggests. Viridis looks like a nice an all-green form plant! Seedlings may display characteristics from their parents, but will not turn out the same as them, which is like a surprise!

dvg: With the days now longer than the nights and the noonday sun rising higher in the sky each day, it won't be long before winter is just an afterthought
