    Question

    Hehe, at least it's one day from the day I discovered it! It's about 1.5mm tall! And still has it's seed coat.



    It's easier to see it if you imagine a capital S in the yellow frame. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh, thought I might as well throw in another photo...a baby spatulata! Happy finding it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    How long have you sow the seed? If it is one day, that is pretty darn fast germination!

    Oops, so sorry. What I meant is that the seedling is one day from when I found it as a tiny green speck. So it may be 2-3 days old in reality. It's so small my dad couldn't see it. And the spatulata is about 2 weeks old.

    The intermedia (fresh seed) germinated in just 7 days! And the spatulata germinated in 3 weeks.

    The seeds were placed in peat/sand mix and I take them out as soon as I see a tiny bit of green, together with some of the peat.

    LFS is good for these very young seedlings because of the its natural anti-fungal properties. And it keeps the surrounding humid. I haven't lost any of the seeds I "pulled" out as yet, except for d.regia which rotted a week later.
