    How does one germinate these things? I have tried, unsuccessfully, 3X with N. mirabilis. What does it take?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Take a look at their natural habitat, This is a hybrid of two lowlanders and temperatures should be accordingly with high humidity.
    I use regular soil mix with live sphagnum on top and lay the seed on it.
    you'll just have to make sure that the sphagnum doesn't overgrow the seedlings, if it does - trim it. it is also good to treat with some fungucide.

    Patience is the key, jimscott. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] sry couldn't resist...some take 6 months to germinate, and others don't if they aren't fresh. Also, if you put seed of lowland spp. in the fridge too long...well then lets say u'll be waiting a looonngg time.

    I have succesfully germinated some seeds I got a while back.
    N.hirsuta x tobaica on LFS with a layer of peat on top. Took about 3 weeks for the first seed to germinate then 2 more week for the other 3. And hopefully more will germinate before 6 months has passed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Tho I would love some seeds from you yoss but I dont have anymore space to germinate them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Tyfone,
    Space is indeed a problem, even with my new greenhouse it's starting to get crowded
    What lights were you using to germinate those nep seeds?

    The freshest seeds germinated in less than a week for me (mirabilis X coccinea, w/ thanks to Lam).

    I used light cold white flouroscent tubes.
    I germinated them in my lowland terraria which is light by 4 of this tubes.
    Need all the experience I can get...
