    Thanks again all.

    You know Dex, you got me thinking about whether I grabbed the right seeds when I sowed these VFTs and you were right, they were not monogamous. These were "Big Mouth" seed parent plants but the polen parents were a mixture of "Big Mouth", "B52" and "Royal Red" which explains the variations.

    Thanks. I’ve tried a lot of different methods over the years for germinating sarrs and I’ve had great success with “live” sphagnum but since I moved out to CA, I needed to find an alternative to “live”. So about 4 years ago, I switched to 100% dried New Zealand long fibered sphagnum (crushed) and I think that has been the improved difference for me. I think the strike rate has increased for me along with improved vigor. You have to keep them covered and warm (80+degrees)and an 18hr photo period. Using this method, my sarr seeds germinate in about 15 days on avg. Of course after germination, a light misting of fertilizer doesn’t hurt either.
