    Well it's been about a year since I first saw germination . About 20 seedlings germinated but I had a few setbacks. The sand and peat mix turned into concrete and I also accidentally let them dry out. I still have 8 survivors and have transplanted them into a perlite and peat mix. Well I hope to do better next time, and will most likely make a completely new set of mistakes but hey[/URL

    Thanks Dionea, I hope that the next update will be more impressive, they are growing better in their new mix. I will be adding my 2014 seedlings to this thread as soon as they are big enough for my camera to pick up, and hopefully they will be growing quicker for me

    Nice results. Looks like your time like is from oct 2013 to oct 2015. Plants are already almost adults. Think they will flower next year?

    Think the pic is deceptive, they still look pretty young apart from the one in the pic, they had a rough start and think it may be another couple of years before I see any flowers. The plants germinated I think in February 14 , I should add my February 15 seedlings to the thread , they have been growing in a small propagator with higher humidity and I think lower light , they are catching up really quickly
