    nothing is really a bit much it matters how far away you keep it and ussaually for best color two to three inches away but if you want less color and more green then about 6-12 inches away congrats on the new pygmies update with pic when the germanate.

    I like to plant them tightly together, about 1cm apart. The small species will form a "carpet", and I like the super packed look of a bunch of D. scorpioides.

    I usually try and space the smaller ones about a nickel or penny's breadth apart, just so they can get to full size with no trouble. I'll plant large pots this way at my mother crop, because I find it easier to collect gemmae from plants that aren't packed too tightly. The rows look kind of unattractive, though - I'll usually save some extras to scatter randomly in smaller pots, so I can have some of those charming little clumps of plants. If it's your first time growing them, though, I think it might be advisable to spread them thinly so that your first generation has minimal competition. Once you're drowning in gemmae it'll be easier to do whatever is aesthetically pleasing.

    Thanks for all the info fiolks!
    I feel well armed for my first attempt at gemmae germination.
    I have a "Gaurdman" brand, 4 tier indoor greenhouse on order. The lights I had left over from the pet store did not survive the 8 years of storage here on the Coast....looks like I am off to the next town to get to Home Depot for more lights this weekend.
    No worries, I always have my Indoor Garden nursery that never sleeps, plenty of light in there.

    Dichrosepala, enodes, lasiantha are more sensitive to transplant.
    This topic keeps on popping up and many are talking about how sensitive this plants are but in reality it's just growers making mistakes. If you take enough soil with the roots there is no way the plant will feel the shock. I did not transplant every single specie so i can't really make a list...i find transplanting these small plants really annoing so i try not to do it too often. It's true, species like pulchella, omissa, roseana, paleacea and hibrids like Lake Badgerup, Carbarup, omissa and nitidula hibrids can take more abuse and survive even if most roots are removed.
    One other important aspect is the time of year you may choose to do the transplant. If you do it during the hot summer months, when the growth is slown down, it may cause the plant to go into dormancy. If a plant without and established root system go dormant....well, take a guess what will happen.
    Best regards,

    This year I spaced my Scorps a little further apart. About an inch or so. I also used deeper solo cups this year.
