    Has anybody germinated their seed successfully thus far? If so, I'd really like to see some pics and hear about your success!

    Or are most of you saving your seed until spring?

    Right now, seeds that I harvested in mid summer are sprouting: D. indica and D. filiformis.

    Not many of them, but a few. I'm sure the numbers will increase. I can't prevent seeds sprouting in the parents' pots.

    The D. filiformis seeds will be coming out of stratification on Monday, so in a few weeks I should have some seedlings.

    YAHOOOO! BTW: It's "Florida Red" not all red...at least the seeds I sent you were that.

    I'm glad you're getting the D. indica! You'll love the plant, if you didn't already

    Some others reportedly got it to grow. However, it people find the seed isn't highly viable (even though it is from many plants at different times this year) I will discontinue it and replace it with something else.

    I think that cuttings are a better way to obtain the plants, but CPplantaholic's site said the seed was easy to germinate, and what I have seems like good seed...it might be slow also? I grew D. aliciae from seed and it's taken a while to get big. Still only half size after almost a year.

    I have a feeling it was entirely my fault. I kept it too humid and had a mold problem two weeks after planting. I treated the pot with Neem oil, but then nothing grew. I'm guessing the seeds succumbed to the mold or perhaps they rotted. It's also possible that maybe they're still OK and just slow to germinate.

    I'm going to keep the soil a little more aerated and keep a close eye on them until they germinate. I really love the way D. venusta looks, so I want to get it right this time. I'll let you know how it goes, and I'll be sure to stick my SASE in the mail tomorrow.
