    I have many, many germinations. Hopefully I can get some pics up soon.

    Congrats! How are you growing them? I provided plenty of warmth and humidity and still nothing .
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Crystal,

    I have them in a 10 gallon terrarium with a cover that is open on one long side, about one inch. Three 26 watt CFL daylight-spectrum bulbs are screwed into fixtures set into the cover of the terrarium. On three sides, I have white paper as a reflective surface. Humidity and heat stay pretty high, however I don't have specific measurements. The D. ordensis germinated about 1 inch away from one of the bulbs, and they are sitting in a tray of water. It took them exactly two weeks from the date of sowing them to germination.

    I hope this might help you and everyone else to get some germinations.

    Jimmy

    I'll work on getting some pics up tonight; just so you can get a real good idea of my setup.

    Crystal,
    Don't toss the seeds you planted. I've had seeds in this complex germinate after 3-6 months - and some may have sprouted later if I had patience. When others have success with the exact same seeds, that lets you know that your seeds are likely ready to germinate - they may just need different conditions (or just some patience).

    In general, petios like heat & humidity - remember where they call home....
    All the best,
    Ron

    Mine are in a pot and until this week, covered, in this setup. Temps are ~90 F. In short, they have light, heat, and humidity. They also haven't germinated... but the dried LFS I topdressed the pot with is green / alive.
