    Devil's Claw Germination!!!

    just recently I recieved some Devil's claw seeds from Carnivorkid and I decided to do a nexperiment. 1 of the seeds I'd peel off 1/2 of the seed coat, and the rest I'd leave alone.
    Then I soaked them overnight. After the soaking I put them in a Damp paper towel and put them under some lights for about 5 days. I just checked them 5 days after putting them in the damp paper towel, and the peeled one has germinated!!! I'll try and post pics later.

    I'm soooooooo excited!!!!!

    Good for you dave,
    I usually soak mine for 2 days. without taking off the outer testa.
    jest make sure that you have plenty of light so they don't get too leggy(etoliated).

    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?
