    Hehe, the oven technique. I put them in the oven(not turned on) to keep them warm, that's all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    This is the white seed variety that lack germination inhibitors, so germination takes place in only a few days.

    The oven also works great for root cuttings!

    Larry,

    Do you have a pilot light in your oven? what keeps them warm? I usually sit my pots on top of the flourescent light ballasts.

    You-re going to get a nickname soon if you keep this up....hmmmm, Seedy Larry?

    Tamlin,

    I also used to sit pots on top of the flourescent light ballasts, but the seeds only stayed warm during the day(nights are always cool around my area). I now use a padded heater for germinating seeds, tc etc. The heater I use is not the reptile heater, which is very small, produces too much heat and uses 30watts of electricity. I use a heating pad designed for heater sore backs etc. This pad is as large as the bottom of a 10 gallon terrarium and has three heat settings. I usually set the heater on low(probably uses only 15 watts or so, high setting=40watts).

    Yeah, my oven has a pilot light, so its always a little warmer in there. Perfect for winter germination.

    Seedy Larry, I like that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I sowed about 5 seeds of P.parvifolia var. hohokamiana 'Paiute' a couple of days ago and 3 have sprouted now. I am surprised as these seeds are half a year old, and I did not store the seeds in the fridge. The entire seedling is covered with tiny glands(like pinguicula) with "dew".
