    Cool

    You mean "gemmae", right? If so, I would recommend just placing them on the surface of a mixture 2/3 silica sand & 1/3 peat. Keep the soil wet via the tray method, AND keep the temps as cool as you can for indoors. Also, lower the photoperiod to 9 hours or so to simulate the winter growing period.

    If I get a lot of gemmae this season, I'll let you know so I can send you some.

    hope this helps,
    Homer

    Gemmae are easy to germinate for me....maybe it's the frequent misting? Anywho, I use a 50/50 mix of peat and silica sand (a little more sand to feel). When it looks pinebarreney (word?) if you've been to pine barrens before, you'll know it's ready for planting/sowing/growing.

    Pygmies do not like hot and humid conditions. They need cool conditions at night.

    Need cool night conditions? That's why I blew it last time! DOH! Live and learn.

    By the way, can you use perlite instead of sand? I find it more readily available, and the sand I have isn't very cource....

    or is the relatively fine sand ok? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
