Hey gang,
New to these parts and hoping to dive right in. I've had great experience with other houseplants, now want to try my luck with CP's and air plants.
Will be growing from seed in a peat moss to perlite 1:1.
-Drosera capensis 25s Sundew Seeds
-Drosera spatulata (mix), 25s Sundew Seeds
-Drosera Mysterious Mix 50s Sundew Seeds
-Drosera finlaysoniana 25s Sundew Seeds


Any tips, tricks or advice is greatly appreciated!

Would I benefit at all from using a seedling heat mat? This project is more than likely going to start in my basement. Temps sit around 20c. The light won't do much for heat as it's led as apposed to hid (which I assume would be overkill anyway) and the basement is pretty much wide open.

Also, the light is a 50 watt cree cxb3590 3500k. Will be doing 4 - 1'x1' tubs. Just waiting on seeds.
Have a couple rain barrels full and no raised beds to water....even in winter, it's a shame.

The lights will heat a covered terrarium more than you think.
You were right. I was growing in an unused fridge with a 23 watt 3.5k light...humidity was at 100% and heat sitting around 28c. Moved the best looking cups into a grow cab I made years ago. These are under a 45 watt 4k cfl in a 9" x 10" x 28", flat white cab with passive exhaust and intake.
