    Dustin,
    Wow, these guys are stubborn! I find that heat does the trick. Even the slowest ones has started to emerge from the substrate. Don't it get super hot in NY?

    Hot eh..........................hmm maybe they would fancy a match or propane torch to get them going? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    It gets nice and roasty in the gh some days if we get full sun and it has been a killer for the past week in there! I had to open the door just to help heat to escape! I have NO idea what I am doing wrong. I didn't plant them...just have them sitting on a moist top soil mix under my benches. They are alive but just sitting there.

Plant them immediately, and keep the soil extra moist. They'll send out roots in no time.

    The second stalk that it's growing won't push the first one aside. They grow happily together.[/QUOTE]
    not in the problem i'm having , the lil one keeps growing and its pushed the mother plant so much that the mother plant is shaped like an upside down stem and it is lieing on the floor that i put its pot on , hope it grows ok , it does'nt seem to be dieing though .

    Dustin, these guys can grow in just about anything. I planted one in the ground (very clayey) and it grew. But good draining soil with lots of fertilizer will make em grow big and fast.

    Goldtrap, as long as the second stalk grows fine, don't worry too much about it.

    Would some sand and perlite and peat or potting soil be suitable? I think I am over-reacting and treating them like orchids! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I use a mix of peat, sand, bark chips, potting soil, and lots of time release fertilizer. And yes, you're overeacting [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] But pot them up right away. Once they're planted, it'll take them no time to grow.
