    Drosophyllum lusitanicum germination

    My Drosophyllum lusitanicum was growing for over 2 and a half years. It took around 2 years before the plant flowered for me which it started in November 2006. After continual flowering the plant looked really bad in February and eventually died.
    I placed a few seeds in some pots hoping to grow this plant again. Well I noticed today while watering my plants that a seed has germinated so far.

    Congrats , I tried growing these, but I just can't. The whole double potting thing is weird.

    I've tried a few times (have some planted right now even) and have never had any luck... Can you explain the mixture, how wet it is, ever top water mist, humidity levels, temps? Any and ALL help on how you got this to germninate and grew yours for 2 years would be most helpful!!

    Awww, I can't believe your drosophyllum died! I remember when you first posted about it germinating. Good luck on that seedling there.

    I'm also interested in seeing the details about its environment, I want to be ready for the next time I try.

    I always wondered if you can sow the seed in the slack pot method or does it have to be transferred?

    I am sorry to hear about your pine! Good to see it produced viable seed.
    I had 5 germinate last spring and I was very excited - 50 %. Unfortunately only 1 survived the first few (really hot) months, and it flowered last July when it was only 4" tall. It was suggested that I cut the flower and I quickly did. It is good now, and I am awaiting a more normally timed flower.
    I recently received more (very fresh- Nov 06) seed from a grower in Australia (or was in NZ?). After 2 months I have 0% germination. Both times I soaked the seed overnight and sowed on pure vermiculite in a small plastic food container and kept moist. I treated the vermiculite with Cleary to prevent fungus. Last time I scarified the seed, I did not this time.
    I grow mine in equal parts sand, perlite, vermiculite, pumice, and 1/2 part peat with a little lava rock mixed in for kicks and as a topdressing to keep everything in place. I am using the Slack method, as well.
    What are you germinating your seeds in?

    Best of luck with your seeds, I hope you see more sprout soon.
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    I've got seeds soaking in water, but haven't noticed any germination. Not having good skill with this one. Could someone provide a quick synopsis of the Slack method?
