    Rattler,

    FYI it can take more than a year to get germination sometimes. My ramellosa took 3 years and I have heard of some seed taking 5. FWIW you probably want to start drying out the pots that are not showing germination, easier to synch them to our seasons that way if you return them to the tray in late Aug or there abouts (in fact given your locality you might be able to give them a couple days outside once nights hit 5C as that may help trigger them.)

    jm82792,

    You really do not need to set up a cooler system you just need to get them synched to the seasons here and you will be fine. Of course getting them synched can be tricky but acclimated tubers can be had from time to time.

    And as for zigzagia not being in the US... Not completely true. I know for a fact it is in TC here Just have not gotten around to deflasking any yet. Maybe next fall...

    I let them dry slowly by placing them in a ziplco and leaving it half zipped. After about a month I zip it shut totally. Usually it looks dry as a brick on top but I still get a tiny amount of condensation in the bag so I know there must be some moisture left.

    Totally different ball of wax there. Best bet is to check out my "How I grow Petiolaris complex" thread. Long and short, petios get hot, humid conditions all the time. While growing they are in 0-2cm water. When/if a plant goes dormant I leave it in the same tank as the others but raise it up by placing it on a 5cm styrofoam cube. The media usually does not totally dry out but sometimes...
