    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] They germinated! I was about to start a new thread when I saw this thread back up again.

    I sowed some seeds on peat/sand. The others I left them to float in distilled water. The ones in distilled water germinated in 8 days!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] And they are more than a foot away from my lights!

    It was difficult trying to fish them out from the water though...'cos when they sprout, they sink. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    hey i have good news!
    today i stared at my seeds which was in the two small pots of spahgum moss. i sprinkled them on the surface 2 weeks ago. Now i see light green sprouts popping out of the black seeds! Germination at last! i keep them in my terrarium and the 2 pots are sitting on a tray of water so the live spahgum moss is quite wet. Can the seedlings drown in this conditions?

    Cindy:id have to try that method! but won't the seeds drown?

    thanks, good luck with your seeds/seedlings!
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    wezx, you have to keep an eye on the seeds in distilled water. Once you see 2-3mm of root coming out, you'll have to "fish" it out using a dropper. Then use a forcep to place it on peat/sand mix.

    You have to be very careful though, 'cos the seed is very delicate...being a lady helped. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Oh dear, that's not good. The seeds will get buried in the peat/sand mix. Being so tiny, the seedling will not have the strength to push itself out of the soil... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    You mean live sphagnum moss? If so, then you'll just need to watch that the seeds are not washed into some of the tiny spaces. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
