I'll be sowing some Drosophyllum seed and I've done my reading (scoured old posts!), but still have a few questions:
1. Potting mix: I think I'll use a 1:1 sanderlite mix. I'd also like to use the slack-method for potting. Is the potting mix good and, more importantly, is it appropriate for slack-potting? Any info on slack-potting (is it freqently used, is it "good/bad", etc). The inner pot will be 4" and outer will be 6" (both clay)
2. Seed germination: I think I'll try the method in which seed is soaked in gibberellic acid for 24hrs (with seed endosperm exposed), and seed kept in shallow water (with daily changing) until it germinates. Another popular method, it seems, is placing the seed on pure perlite until it germinates. Any favorites out there?
3. Placing seed in pot: I read that the seed must be placed 1/4" into the potting mix and covered. Am I correct? It seemed a bit strange to me, considering most CP seeds shouldn't be covered.
4. Any other germination and cultivation tips would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time. Looking forward to any replies (and to successfully germinating some Drosophyllum!)
