    Unhappy

    Hi everyone,
    Just got me some D. auriculata seeds (thanks Owen&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img], and I have done some research on the internet, but it only tells me how to cultivate the plant, not sow the seeds (well, it might, but I grew quite impatient&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].

    1) Anyway, anyone have some tips? I know this species is summer dormant, so does that mean I should heat-stratisfy (spelling?) my seeds?

    2) Can these guys skip their first dormancy period like VFT's and Sars? I would prefer to sow them now, and not have to wait until fall. (again, impatient. I know I know)

    Those are the biggies at this point, but any other advise as far as the seeds go would be welcome. Thanks in advance.
