    So Ceph Stratification Is Over...

    So today was the 8 week mark for my pots of cephalotus seed i nthe fridge. They are on the surface of a peat/sand mix and appear to have made it through mold free.
    I just want to make sure that my current plans are suitable now.
    I plan on putting them under my T5 fixture still in their bags about a foot from the lamps. I don't think it will be too hot but wanted soem other opinions. I can also put them unto my 2 T8 fixtures that have considerably less light if temps are an issue.
    Thoughts and/or suggestiosn are greatly appreciated!

    That arrangement should work out just fine; just ensure that nothing gets cooked . . .

    Agreed, everything sounds good. Do you have any holes in the bag or are you opening the top a little bit? I would just monitor them daily and make sure no mold develops or live sphagnum starts taking over the pot. Good luck!!

    Just curious - which cultivar are you growing?

    You can't grow a Cephalotus cultivar from seed

    I *could* it's just not very likely. In any case, I have some Eden Black x Self, HG x Everything, and VG x everything. I currently don't have the bags open, was mroe afraid of stuff getting INTO the bag to cause mold. Thoughts?

    Ime, an accurate thermometer trumps an opinion every time.

    I'm afraid you can't propagate either 'Eden Black' or 'Hummer's Giant' from seed. If you doubt this please read the cultivar registrations.

    Cephalotus 'Eden Black' :- Propagation: vegetatively via leaf or rhizome cuttings or by division

    Cephalotus 'Hummer's Giant' :- Propagation: vegetative only

    *gasp* wait, really? I've seen BigBella have several self pollinated cultivars and crossing cultivars together to produce seed. Do these seeds just produce regular Cephalotus then?
