    Unhappy

    I recently drizzled some D. capensis seeds onto some nice wet peat. How long do I have until I see germination of the seeds? I also didn't realize how tricky it would be to get just a few seeds down. Before I knew it, I had about 100 seeds scattered about the pot (table, floor, pants...) Any tips to encourage germination?

    Keep them warm and in a sealed ziplock if possible. Typical germination should happen within 2 weeks to 2 months depending on your conditions and the freshness of the seed.

    If you have them in a pot, try using a clear plastic cover (i.e. from a take out container) but make sure it's a good fit for the pot. If you don't have a clear plastic cover that's the right size, use saran wrap.

    Water from the top if you did not know that. Then once they germinate you can use the tray. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Good luck!
