    Ok I read about them and know I need to soak the seeds in warm water and all of that wonderful stuff but does it matter what I plant them in? I plan on using peat and I am sure that it'll work but is there something better I should use instead?

    I just have some planted in regular potting soil.

    They are growing crazy.

    I really do not think that it matters what you plant them in.

    Many people use peat to start plants out...so if you are going to use that...I see no problem.

    Enjoy!

    Cool thanks I had a feeling it wouldn't matter but I figured that I better make sure. Oh and I'm glad to hear that they are quick growers [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    The ones that I have planted are about 2 inches tall!

    They look great...so cool...when my lights come on...the open and at night they close.

    I think that they are just 'showing off' for the VFT's

    to cool!

    Well, I guess I was really excited.. I didn't soak them, and I planted about hald my bag the other day (I have not done anything with the rest..) But.. regardless of not soaking them, I have so far, about a 30% germination rate... they are still tiny though...

    YAY :cheesy:
    I got my seeds today and they are soaking. This is so cool!
    You all probably think I am a dweeb for being so happy about them but as I have said my great grandmother used to grow them. My sister, brother and I used to play with them for hours just facinated by them. Since she died I haven't seen them in any store around here and I didn't know the name of them to look anywhere else.
    This will bring back some good memories.

    germination rate just went up... more seeds have sprouted, though they are just kinda 'chillin' with their two tiny little leaves there... hmm.... Jaie, didn't you say yours were growing like weeds within days?

    Out of curiousity how long did they tke to sprout? Oh and are these plants ok to handle fertilizers like Miracle Grow? I have soome Superthrive too [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You know the 2 put together can realy get a plant going. I had a plant given to me cause it was near death so I could save it. I put the mixture of the 2 on it and the next morning that sucker woke right up. It only had 3 leaves left but they were sticking straight up.
    Hm... I have enouh seed where I can realy experiment here 1 container superthrive, 1 miracle grow, 1 both, and 1 nothing.
