    I don't know maybe it's no big deal but I'm excited! I got 4 out of 5 seeds of R. gorgonias to germinate within one week. These seeds are pretty old too. They were passed to me by a friend over a year ago and I think he had them for at least a year. I was all prepared to wait it out but here we go-- Will post pics when they start putting leaves up-

    The seed was originally from Rare Exotic Seeds I believe but my friend bought them so I'm not sure--

    Nice!

    I'm still waiting on some R. dentata seeds to germinate.

    A couple of them have split open to reveal a yellow/brown embryo and I chipped the seed coat off of one of the split ones but they still don't seem to want to do anything..

    So far,I have one coming up,out of a total of 8 seeds from the ICPS seed bank.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Finally! The one I chipped the seed coat off of has sent out a little root and is going to sprout!

    And it only took a little over 2 months, 68 days to be exact.
