    Constant watering and don't remove the husks from the seeds. Good light source, but don't forget to keep them humid. Otherwise, they will not grow. Usually the take several months to germinate.

    So should I mist them and let them sit in a shallow tray, or just mist them, or just sit in a tray with a little water? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I just want to make sure I get it right the first time. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Well, yes. I have put my first set of seeds on a small terrarium with grow-lux since January this year, and to my surprise I see germination going on as of april the 10th. they need high humidity at all times, but don't saturate them with water.

    Gotcha. Thanks agustin. I won't flood the tray. Maybe i'll pick up a 5 gallon tank just for them.

    Btw, what are the specs on that gro-lux?

    Dear Vertigo:

    18 watts gro-lux works for me.

    Hmm, sounds like this may be less complicated then I first thought. I can throw a 27w on top of them, and put them in a 2 1/2 gal hex tank suspended above about an inch or so of water, should keep the heat and humidity on them. At what distance do you have your light? And do Ceph seeds require light to germinate or just like regular seeds?

    Thanks again.

    Vertigo:

    Distance between light source and plants should be no less than 7 inches.
