    I sow mine on the surface of moist peatmoss in small pots inside ziploc bags under fluorescent lights. Soon after they germinate I pluck them out and plant them into their own individual pots.

    After you put them in their own pot, Do you keep them in high humidity situation?
    I have finally had ping sprouting sucess, P vulgaris, P. caerula and a Noid from Scotland. They are up to 4 leaves. is this time to transplant them?
    Thanx for listening and keep 'em plants growin'

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Certainly sounds like a good time to transplant. Yes, they seem to do better with very high humidity, unlike the Mexican species and hybrids that respond well to high humidity but can tolerate long periods of fairly low humidity.
