    These did not. Although I did sow more than 6 seeds. So perhaps some are waiting. I think maybe a month or so? As I said the hybrid ones I was sent still havn't done anything. But i've not lost hope yet I'm still waiting for D. regia to sprout too.

    Great shots, nice plants-- I have been waiting on some falconeri x paradoxa 'swamp form' seeds for about 2 months and no sign of germination yet. Homer, do you keep the potted seeds in the exact same conditions as the parents or hotter?

    For the most part, yes. The real difference is that the pots with seeds are placed in ziplock baggies for high humidity. As for heat, they are placed on a seedling heat mat.

    Keep in mind that I'm not thrilled about the germination success currently. I have a couple plans to get better germination rates. If and when they succeed, all post another discussion.

    regards,

    Cool

    McLendon's. Its a local hardware store. To be honest, they are more expensive than Exo-Terra from Petsmart, etc. They warm the tray, but nothing too special. I'm working on other heating methods.
