    Hey folks, I just got a huge shipment of seeds from Englands Chiltern Seed Co. and I'm almost done sowing everything on pure shredded LFS in 72 cell Jiffy seedling greenhouses and stacking them ontop of my flourescent fixtures for bottom heat. I was just curious if any of you have experience with germination times on any of these:

    Aristolochia baetica
    Aristolochia chilensis
    Aristolochia clematis
    Aristolochia elegans
    Aristolochia galeata
    Aristolochia grandiflora
    Aristolochia macrophylla
    Aristolochia maxima (these seeds are funny looking, they're the size, shape and thickness of a bass guitar pick)

    Devils Tongues:
    Amorphophallus bulbifer
    Amorphophallus kiusianus

    Jack in the pulpits:
    Arisaema ciliatum
    Arisaema cf. consanguineum
    Arisaema fargesii
    Arisaema flavum
    Arisaema jacquemontii
    Arisaema japonicum
    Arisaema urashima
    Arisaema wallichianum

    Lady Slippers / Balloon Flowers
    Calceolaria arachnoidea
    Calceolaria biflora
    Calceolaria corymbosa
    Calceolaria lanigera
    Calceolaria mexicana
    Calceolaria pinifolia

    I also got a pack of mixed Drosera seed, the list of possible species is quite long, probly all capensis, adelae and spathulata, it would be my luck... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Anyone familiar with sowing any of these?

    I just got some Jack seeds off eBay myself. The bad news is...I read online somewhere (AFTER purchasing them), that the seeds need to be kept moist and not dried out. If they dry out, they go into a deep dormancy and might not germinate for up to 10 years. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I hope that's not true...
