    Great job! I had no problem with germination and the seedlings grew fast.... and they all died within a week. It's like having B. liniflora and damp-off.

    Thanks Jim!

    My seedlings did the same. This particular plant came from a fellow hobbyist. I received two seedlings and they are both doing well. I've read the green form can tolerate slightly wetter conditions than the normal form.

    I believe the seed were the normal form. They were doing really well then just all died, just like yours. It's odd that none of my B. liniflora died, and I even transplanted half of them. It's weird how it works!

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    That's odd. Maybe it's just more sensitive than B liniflora?

    Btw, Nice avatar. What does it mean?

    Hmm it's possible. I've heard all kinds of horror stories surrounding B. liniflora. Maybe D. indica tops it?

    The symbols in my avatar represent each member in the band Led Zeppelin: Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, John Bonham, and Robert Plant (top to bottom). The symbols first appeared on their fourth un-named album which has been unofficially called Led Zeppelin IV and sometimes Zoso. They wanted to prove they were 'the stuff' and decided not to even have their name on the album, using the symbols instead. They only sold 23 million copies of the un-named album . The symbols have origins in mysticism, which is fitting considering several songs on the album refer to J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.

    daaaaaang,
    i wish i didn't just kill my last one!
    i had them in the wrong media mix
    what's the ratio of peat:sand yours is in at the moment?
    i used perlite instead of sand and it definitely kept my seedlings from getting over a few millimeters tall in over 6 months.

    Crystal - Thanks for the offer! But it's alright, I think I got over the D. Indica bug. But the flowers are awfully attractive....

    My mix was 5 parts sand 1 part peat. Maybe more sand. They thrived till they died.

    Hey CPlantaholic - That particular one is in approximately 50/50 peat and sand. I believe Jeff's mix would be better, the more drainage the better it seems. I might do an experiment with the some of the typical seed that I have left in pure sand and see what happens.

    Jeff - No problem. Thought I might offer .
