    Been working on it, and still getting nowhere. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
    Maybe I am just impatient. Is it truly unreasonable of me to assume that I should see something happening with the seeds after only a few days in water? Even keeping them warmer than room hasn't helped so far. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Unhappy

    By any chance, since mimosa is not a CP, does it require a more nutrient rich soil than the peat/perlite mix? Would a potting soil mix work best for these plants?

    Yeah, treat them like a regular house plant. If they are in a peat/perlite mix right now don't worry, that's often used for germinating seed. Just transplant them into regular potting soil when they are big enough to transplant.

    Ok, 8 days and counting now, still nothing. I will wait until the 23rd, and update post again. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Should I try again, or give it until the 23rd? I used the peat/perlite mix instead of potting soil rich in nutrients. But this shouldn't have been a problem. The terrarium has been steady at 85 degrees for that whole time, and when I planted them, I watered them with distilled water that had cooled from boiling. So it was quite warm, but not boiling.

    CN,
    How many seeds did you plant? I planted a bunch, and only a few came up. 85 is plenty warm. How did you prepare the seeds? Did you wait till they plumped up before planting? How deep did you bury the seed? I water with room temperature RO water, I don't think it needs to be watered with warm water.
