tray method for Venus fly trap germination
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.

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.
