    Looks like you have great germination.

    I just went and checked mine............. Nothing

    I should have let someone else have the seeds. Winter time is not a good time for me to try to germinate seeds. The house is too cool and the only place I have to place them does not get much sunlight at all.

    hehehe nep seedlings. I made that mistake once when Pyro was giving out some raff x (?) seeds a year or so back. I have about a hundred little neps, about the size of a nickel...
    Nice. I did the "really harsh conditions" treatment to limmit the seedlings - only those tough enough survived. I got it down to five, gave away two, and still have three. After a little over a year, they're around 5" in diameter. I love time release fertilizer (osmocote in this case, but I usually use special nep stuff).

    Geck, I'm not sure how much light has to do with germination - temperature would be your biggest hurdle. Put them over your grow lights for some bottom heat. Just not directly ON the lights, or you'll cook them.

    I just got back from the Bahamas and only had a minute to look at my plants; but, I think I see at least a couple sprouts of the same seed batch. I'll have to look a little more closely tomorrow after work but my quick glance looked like growth from the seed and not any "weedyness."

    It's so exciting when you get germination on seed. And you just gotta love baby neps. They get little pitchers even when they are teeeeenie tiny.

    What are those lighter strands?

    Guess what I noticed today when watering. I have germination.

    I guess the cooler temps I have mine in made it take a lot longer to germinate then everyone else's.
    I had actually given up on them. I've got over 20 seeds are or in the process of germinating, so there may be many more to come.

    elgecko,
    I have cooler temps, and find it absolutely takes longer for germination, and subsequent slower growth, at least for a little while. I have some seed that didn't germinate for about five months!

    Hey! I just noticed like 3 days ago that I had some nep germination... I think they were seeds from Zero... I'll have to check and I'll let you know which they are! Interesting it took mine like 2 months longer though. Must be the cooler temps I guess...

    (whatever they are, they're my best success rate so far on nep seeds!)
    Thanks!
