    Hey everyone should the seeds of D.Spathulata look lik pepper sprinkled on a paper plate??? I took apart the dried flowers and that is what came out. Is that them? I assume it is. Also how can I store these until the rest of the flowers dry up so I collect the rest of the seeds??? Also what soil should D.Spathulata be sown on? Thanks! Nep.G.

    You can try the fridge. I don't think a couple of weeks make that much difference for this species. Then again, my plant died shortly after arriving.

    Seeds will keep at room temperature for awhile, but long term storage should be in the fridge. Spatulata is sown on 5050 sand/peat, and these seeds do not require stratification.

    I leave the seed in a paper envelope for a week or so at room temp. to help the ripening process, then put the paper envelope in a plastic ziplock. Paper will absorb moisture in the fridge, and the aim is for cool and dry for best storage.
