    Speaking of you, I got your crazy SASE today.

    You guys are going CRAZY now! Spending like 3x+ more on postage than neccesary and...these elaborate setups!

    But, your effort is rewarded in that the seeds are safer.

    Here's what I did, in case I have success.

    I took four of those plastic trays your grocery store's bakery typically puts things like croissants in (like this; square, about one square foot). I used 50/50 peat/perlite, rinsed everything really well, then nuked the media in the microwave for two minutes (at about an inch deep). Let the media cool, then put it into the trays about an inch to an inch and a half deep; one tray per species. Made sure the media was nice and damp, sprinkled the seed on the media, closed the lids, then put the trays in my rack. We'll see how it goes!
    Knowing you, you're bound to have success

    LOL, that's great, but how so?

    What's that supposed to mean?! Huh!? If I don't watch it, I'm going to start being known as Captain Overkill around here. ;c


    Also, I took the trays out of the rack (it was getting too cold in there; good for highlanders, not so much for seeds) and put them in a room where it's something like 75 degrees and catches a good amount of indirect light from an east-facing window. Once they (hopefully) germinate, they'll go back into the rack for the light.

    Seed received. Plan to sow tonight in 2" square pots on the surface of a 1/4" layer of thoroughly rinsed black sand. Makes it very easy to see the seedlings as soon as they begin to emerge from the seed coat.

    It means that you do things intelligently and properly. Just like you did everything, at least the rinsing and sterilizing, that I would have done...or maybe did a bit more than I would have done.

    Take it as a compliment

    If that works I have never heard of that approach before...even though I do have alot of naturally black sand laying around. Tell us how it goes!

    The only reason I wonder is some of those plants might like an acidic media...probably no problem with the D. indica though.

    I use the black sand topping quite usually when I'm sowing seed. It has worked very well. It makes a nice contrast between the newly emerging seedlings and the black sand. I germinate under fluorescent lighting - I would probably be apprehensive in using it if I were germinating under natural light (the sand might get too hot for the seedlings).

    Wow! That's very interesting. I also use a black media. It is mostly composed of peat....I never really thought about it, But the media is black just the same!
