    yes, ok so I just got the seeds from my D rotundafolia [Edit: correct spelling, D. rotundifolia] (spelling on that?)
    anyways, I placed them ontop of damp peatmoss in a container that has good drainage and it is outside on my porch. Should I cover the container with a plastic cup to keep the humidity high and move it indoors
    Or should I leave it outside where humidity for right now is good
    (Missouri)
    any propogation tips would be helpful
    Thanks a lot

    I know that when they're adults they can be blasted with sun. You probably want to aim for higher light. I'd avoid low light and high humidity. Make sure that you don't fry your seeds by having them fully covered in full sun. If your media is kept damp, then you probably shouldn't need to worry about covering.

    But this's sort of all speculation. Wait until you get the OK from someone who has more experience.

    (although it probably wont)

    (I am prepared for failure!)

    This is a temperate species and needs stratification. It is winter dormant, so now is the worst time to sow the seed...better to keep it in the fridge until spring and sow then.
