    YO! You know the pot with the dead plant in it? I use those EXACT pots of the EXACT same size and colour! What a coincidence!

    Slacks version of his potting method sounds Romanian to me, my brain can't keep up, which is one reason I don't think I'm going to ever get Drosophyllum. Ever.

    It's pretty much just a pot planted inside of another pot.

    I've tried twice and can't get them to sprout. Jeremiah has awesome talent, I hope he posts pics.

    Andrew,
    I would think that there is no problem with the temps.
    Are you keeping the top of the soil moist by misting every day?

    Good luck with them, hope they germinate soon for you.

    elgecko- Thanks for confirming the temp... I do not mist.. But there is a fogging system in the g/h. I can't say it keeps the media wet.. but I would assume it's not exactly dry either. Still no luck. I have a few more in the fridge... Maybe I'll read back over this topic and try another few using just suggestions here.

    When I saw that you replied to this thread, I thought you where going to say you had 1 germinate.
    But I see that is not the case.

    How long have you been trying? I have read that sometimes it takes a long time for them to germinate.

    When waiting for the seed to germinate, I do keep the soil really damp. Once the seed germinates I back off letting the top of the soil dry just a touch to keep the seedling from suffering from damping off.

    I placed 2 seeds in the pot. No signs of the second seed germinating yet.

    Here's an updated picture.



    Good luck with your seed. I hope it germinates soon for you.

    I think I'm going on 3 or 4 months... They probably already damped off... it'd be my luck... :sigh:

    Wow, grows pretty quick it seems

    They sure do. Once they get going they really take off.

    Here is 2 shots from the first time I germinated a Dewy Pine.





    These pictures where 23 day apart.
