June 21--Finally got to take it out of the refrigerator. It was a small celebrate for the first day of Summer. Eastern or Southern light works best. I pretty much have just Western light coming into my apartment. Will this be the plants downfall?
July 7--Nothing happening yet except condensation on the dome but the instructions say it takes 3-6 weeks for germination and some varieties may take months to sprout. I'm not quite clear based on the info they sent how often to water this thing. Rain water or distilled water is needed.
August 27--Well it's been about 9 Weeks now and no signs of life. It's really disappointing and I wish I could go back and change the number of stars I orginally gave it when I had anticipation that I'd get my meat eating plants. I wonder if anyone has had success?
The plastic dome is of decent quality, and we got living carnivorous plants from an online seller -- worked out much better. This is a TOTAL waste of time and money, unfortunately.
But if you're feeling lucky, you should know that most of the seeds in this kit aren't much bigger than pinheads, and they all come packaged together in the same tiny plastic bag. So if you want to have each type of plant growing in a different section of the plastic tray provided in the kit - like that shown on the box cover - you need to separate out each seed under a strong magnifying glass. And even then you won't be successful, as most of these seeds look just like ground pepper. I accidentally spilled a few on the floor, and after sweeping them all up I literally couldn't tell them from the other debris in the dustpan.
By the way, it takes a minimum of 6-8 years living in ideal growing conditions for any of the plants in this kit to reach the sizes shown on the box cover. These are NOT plants that can simply be put on a windowsill. They need an environment that is not easily provided in the average home - LOTS of very bright light (about 15 hours a day) and very wet acidic growth medium (such as sphagnum moss). These plants need to have their feet kept wet but the rest of them kept dry. And even then, these are VERY slow-growing plants. If you use incandescent bulbs to provide the necessary level of light, the amount of heat they produce can easily raise the temperature to lethal levels. For this reason I recommend a combination of fluorescent bulbs and a moist/dry heating pad at the bottom.Read more ›
The included instructions state repeatedly that CPs are slow, both to germinate and grow. As a kid in elementary school I was taught how to grow marigolds or beans. Cucumbers also pop out of the ground before you can turn around twice. These dudes aren't. They shouldn't be marketed for educational for kids... seeds, especially these ones, take too a long a time and more attentiveness than most folks have. Kids want everything yesterday, not in a few years.
So many reviews of this product complain of no instant result, or failure to follow the meticulous instructions given. Some seeds need stratification, others are temperate enough not to need it. Some seeds are duds by nature. There's no way to tell which is who. CPs live in very special environments. You have to try to simulate their environment. It takes work to create that for them.
If you want to get a toy for kids that will pay out immediately, don't buy this. If you want to teach them patience and caretaking, this is golden.
