    My experience with seeds has been that they sprout in about 3 weeks after having had 4 weeks of wet cold. NOW, I also have them under a 250 watt metal halide light that keeps them nice and warm. Heat is the trick and on top of the medium.

    Kate,
    i have extra flava seed if you would like some.
    I remain a man obsessed with a genus

    Oh, yes please Sarrac!

    Ironically I was just reading up on flava and thinking "I have to get some of these!"

    lol

    *edit* Thought I should add some info on what I did.
    4 weeks stratification in the fridge wrapped in damp papertowel.

    Sown on peat/perilite mix since I can't seem to get ahold of any spagnum.

    Placed pots in a large plastic bag set on a sunny shelf in the gazebo, where they got about 5 hours of direct sun per day.

    Germination took 3 weeks exactly.
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    I am using an Epson 650 with Tiffin Close up lenses 10+ and 7+. The camera is no longer made.
