    Angry

    Hey, i just need to vent. This is the 4th time i have tried to get this spieces to germinate, everything else i have in the terrarium germinated right a way and is growing like crazy. I have decieded that D.intermedia just hates me.

    Does anyone else have a spieces of plant that hates them, something that no matter what you try will not grow for you?

    Waaaaaaah!!!!!
    The ONLY species of CP I meniged to germinate was the seeds of S.pssittacina(parrot pitcher)
    I think I would be able to germinate more species now though.

    Really?? Mine grows like a weed and flowers all the time! I don't think it would die unless I doused it in some noxious chemical or put in in the deep freeze!

    ktulu,
    my d. intermedia died too!! I ordered the plant this spring, put it in my bog garden, it grew great for about a month, and one day it just up and died! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    It could be your seed was inviable...it happens if the seed isn't stored properly. It also may be that you did not give the seed a proper stratification: if this is the temperate form, it requires a cold stratification of at least several weeks, preferably with a snap freeze or 2.

    Yes, some plants seem to dislike my culture. I have yet to be successful with either Byblis or Drosophyllum. Drosera indica does not do well for me, and my Heliamphora are not all I would have them be.

    well first im glad to see im not the only one with a curse.

    Tamlin, as for invialbe, everytime i was told that the seeds were just collected. For startification if have tryed anything you can think of involving a frige/freezer. I just think the plants some how know its me, and wont grow because they hate me.
