Should I use the tray method for Venus fly trap seed during germination? I have just planted new Venus fly trap seeds today. Also, I was wondering if I needed to start off light with a regular lamp instead of sunlight. I've been reading articles online and that's what it has been telling me to do.
Tray Method for Venus Fly Trap Germination
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
I am not entirely sold on the idea of using the tray method for venus fly trap germination because I think you run the risk of saturating the potting medium, which in turn could rot the seed. I would pursue this method of watering perhaps later on when you have a more established plant. I would also suggest starting off your seed in bright indirect light versus putting it in direct sunlight.
