    Damn good advice, I have been pouring over the old threads quite a bit lately. It is amazing to learn how much I don't know! I think this is a cup of tea for me. I have raised many species of tropical fish through the years and owned a pet store for 7. I am aware and in tune with my environments, both natural and artificial.
    I am very patient, as I know experiance cannot be purchased.

    While not as nice or easy as reading a book while on the "throne", but a lot more up to date in many ways actually.
    Like growing your own medicine it isn't rocket science, but keep in mind that each one of us have created an environment that is in some way or another, unique from everyone else. Even if we do the exact same set-up as someone, it will be different. And THAT is where the experimenting and learning comes into place.
    The best part about this hobby, is in learning to understand what our plants are communicating to us, as they respond to the environment we have created for them. Ultimately, what works for one of us may not work for others exactly the same way.
    If you can remember that and use the information, suggestions and advice you get as a "guideline" and not a Law/Rule, then you will be ahead of the game. People can only tell you what may have worked for them, NOT what will work for you!
    That is for you to find out and to learn on your own! And THAT is what makes "relating" with plants and other living things so fascinating and terrific!
    Good Luck!

    I am surprised that no one has suggested Barry Rice's FAQ as a good starting point:
    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html

    and then check out the ICPS Germination and Growing Guides
