    Well vicki i just have to tell you I planted the chia seeds i got from you. It took 2 days and they were up and growing. I put the little pot in the tank. The first night my hermies just walked around it looking at it lol. Trying to figure out what it was. The next night i guess they worked it out as soon as they were up one of my big ones called Tiger was sitting right in the middle of it lol. He stayed there for about an hour by the time he left it about 1/4 of the plants were gone. Now on the third night there are 3 hermies sitting around the outside of it munching away.
    One thing i found, I got the other seed mix off you and that didnt work it got mold on it. What i did with this lot of plants was mix a little sand with the worm castings so it didnt stay as moist. I take the pot out during the day and put it under a grow light, then put it back at night. So i would reccomend the kits to anyone, just be careful not to let it get to moist.
    Thank you vicki from me and my hermies.:)
