    The seedbank seeds are popping all over. In about 2 weeks, I have over 60% germination. Should be interesting ....

    Oooo! Good luck with them. I hope at least some of them will reach maturity for you. Keep us posted.

    I sowed 24 seeds on Jan 14 and had 21 sprouts on Feb 2. Great germination imo. Thanks to whoever donated fresh, viable seeds to the seedbank!

    Now comes the part that has been historically difficult for me - keeping them alive ...

    Not much to see - but here they are (2.5" pot):

    Exciting! I'm holding my breath for these little plants. Hopefully you can rewrite your own history with this batch.

    LFSM? I didn't think that was the best D. regia growing medium

    it seems that LFS does work pretty well when germinating D. regia from seed: http://icps.proboards.com/index.cgi?...7&page=1#27996

    I also grow my D. 'Big Easy' in a mix of LFS and cypress mulch, as suggested by Joseph Clemens:


    But I grow my "typicals" in peat:sand with equal success, so it doesn't really seem to matter once you get them established.

    If you're referring to my pic, there is ~ 1/4-3/8" of microwaved & Trichoderma-treated LFS on top of a peat/LFS/aps/sand/cypress bark media mix. The 'treated' LFS layer has been the best way I have found to give seedlings a good start vs moss & fungus attacks. When done correctly. the top layer will not have any invasive foreign growth for months or longer.

    As for the 'best D. regia growing medium' for adult D. regia, I haven't noticed significant differences in growth with assorted types of media nor have I seen a clear consensus from others.
    All the best,
    Ron

    @RL7836: Wow! What measures you've taken to ensure success. I hope it doesn't elude you

    As for myself, I sowed my D. regia seed outside...I seem to have the most successs there. Of course the sprouting time is greatly prolonged
