    Hi everyone,

    What's your temperatures like? It's like early summer year round here so I might have to put the pot into an air-conditioned room. TIA!

    And yes, Butch. I will use trichoderma and will try at least one seed. Maybe two. Maybe all.

    @cindy: im planing to keep my seeds relatively warmer than typical heliamphora temps. 2 true leaves from germination, i will then move them into cooler conditions.

    Looking nice Butch! I added some Trich directly to my seeds yesterday. Sprinkled some flowable over them and then misted with a bit of water.

    Hmm as far as temperatures ago, mine are going to have to tough it. So far in the basement (only a partial basement so my temps do get up into the 70's) the max temperature that I have seen is around 73F. I'm hoping it won't be too warm as it continues to warm up here in western NC.

    Good luck everyone!!

    Crystal, just giving you a heads up, I've tried growing heliamphora from seed last year---having relatively fresh seed, I believe my low germination rates were partially due to lower temps, i.e. typical heli temps. Of 60-70 seed sown, I've had a max number of 15. Then again, these were nowhere near as fresh as Butch's.

    Here is my addition to the thread. I went the jello route (minus the pineapple rings and maraschino cherries) . . .

    What is typical heliamphora temperatures? Would 75-80F be above?
