    Hey All,

    I'm seeking a seed that quickly germinates and as a plant, stays small (under 2" give or take).

    Any advice?

    Yo Phil-dude!

    Habitat requirements? Tropical/temperate? High/low humidity?

    ha!

    Hey Mike. I didn't think of asking you or Anita directly [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    2"ish tall... sorta ground cover-ish -- i'm really open to anything, doing an experiment [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I remember being in atlanta at a trade show a couple of years ago -- and someone was marketing miniature "palm" trees (which were actually a type of grass as I recall, from the orient). It was something from a company called "cal palm" or something weird.

    Anyway -- 2-3" tall... at full growth, easy to grow, I'm open to the types of conditions required for the plant. My biggest concern is the overall size just being dwarf/miniature in nature.

    Any thoughts?

    Say hi to anita and the kids!

    You sure it wasn't Mondo Grass? If you separate it into individual 'bulbs,' I'll bet you get the effect you are looking for. AND it would do the ground cover thing as well!

    Forgot to mention: There are dwarf varieties of Mondo Grass available out there...they should be close to what you are looking for.
