    Hmm...the 3 parent guehoi plants were from 5 seeds...that makes the germination 60%.

    How hot is your heating pad, Warren? I usually place the container of seeds just under the T5 lights, about 2" away. My ambient temperatures are in the 80s.

    The pad is on the thermostat control but doesn't show the temperatures. I measured the soil temperature at about 85F. I put them in my petiolaris tank to germinate. Between the pad and lights are temp is usually around 90F during the day.

    Since B. guehoi is found in the same latitudes as most of the petiolaris sundews I figured they'd be happy with the same temperatures.

    After I transplant this first batch I'll try another with 500ppm. 1000ppm might be too much.

    Ok, even though I flooded the B. 'Goliath' x guehoi seeds they managed to germinate in about 5 days.

    So far 6/8 using 1000ppm GA3 treatment sown 11/19/11 - germination 11/24/11

    They might have germinated sooner if I hadn't been a klutz and dumped water in the cup

    Let's see what the second batch at 500ppm will do.
