    Honestly mine did best in a real cold window everyone that was in that window sprouted and it was as low as -15 F sometimes at night.....granted it is 70 inside but the window temp itself was real cold

    A reliable source is a good thing as well as time-of-year to ensure you're getting fresh seed (typically fall in the Northern hemisphere & 6 months from that in the South). Patience is a very good trait when growing Cephs from seed ...

    Great to hear that people are getting germination!! Maybe someday we'll figure out why some folks struggle with these seeds ...
    Fall eh, I did not know that. My experience is showiing, or lack of,

    Better to try and stuggle than never trying at all, LOL. Stuggle equals gaining experience for next time. Yeah, can't be happy growing CPs if no patience, but the rewards are awsome Easy for me as I love watching the babies grow.

    They're still growing well so I figured I'd grab an updated pic - last time I counted, there were over 30 of the little guys. I'm still seeing 1-2 new germinations every week or two...

    They look great! I'm still jealous - mine still haven't sprouted.

    That is truly a great sight to see. It seems like I haven't seen enough seed-grown Cephalotus in my days.

    I'd love to trade you for one of these in the future when they get decent sized. I've yet to have a Cephalotus survive for me. Maybe a seed-grown individual would have a better chance at survival.

    True - it seems not that many people get their plants to flower & even fewer get seed to germinate ... what's up with that?

    I doubt a sg plant would change whatever is wrong with your conditions. Either way, I don't plan to keep these much longer ...

    Better to plan on winning the bidding or negotiate w/ the winner ...

    I grew several seedling to adulthood a few years back (still have one - hopefully should flower this year). Over the last year, I've gathered up several different clones - as they mature I hope to do some crossing and get some interesting genetic diversity with my seedlings & see if anything interesting pops up ....
