    Awesome! Thanks for posting photos and glad to see some sprouts.
    Interesting media. Peat and turface?

    When did you guys sow the seeds? Did you cold stratify? I'd really like to do Cephalotus seeds sometime, but don't know much about the process.

    No stratification for me. Sow and forget is my method.

    I was experimenting with media at the time and used only peat and turface (technically oil dry from NAPA). I fear I may live to regret the turface, but so far so good! #fingerscrossed

    I have recently moved these seedlings from my southern windowsill to my growlights in my classroom. I figure now that they are green they need more lumens.

    If they are fresh seeds there is no need for strat. The seeds I planted when straight from the pod to the pots. The seed I sent out were no longer than a few days old. If they are older they can benefit from it.

    I use turface in all of my cephalotus mixes. From my experience they seems to like it. I believe I will continue using it for awhile. They best mix I have found so far is peat, turface and perlite.

    Here's some of my results with turface. This plant was divided last weekend in the potting mix described above.

    This is hummers giant. Mother plant of the division I sent you last week.

    Growing tip:
    I sacrificed the pot so that I could get the plant out without damaging the small hair roots near the bottom of the pot. I have learned from the past that plants bounce back a lot faster of you can save these roots. The recovery time is much shorter. They are very hard to keep intact of you just try pulling the plant out of the pot.

    This is also also the plant that produced most of the seed I sent out during the summer!
