    Hmmmm. I did pretty much that - live LFS on peat & sand mix, in heated fishtank, under Grolite. I got nothing from both the Neps & D. odensis seeds. What I did get was a lot of VFT's & and some cobra lilys, as well as D. filiformis , Ceph, and binata leaf sprouts.











    Some things worked... and a couple didn't!

    I got just a few (I was expecting more) D. binata germinations under the same conditions that I've germinated all my seeds so far. I'm not sure if that means anything...

    I'll have to try some VFT seeds in my LL terrarium after stratification, to see how they do.

    Could you have lost them to rot? Seeing your setup, I'm considering that unlikely because of your good lighting, but I'm not sure. I don't see why those seeds worked for me, but not for you.

    Lol! I'm sure it wasn't rotten skill.

    Did you use live LFS for the N. splendiana x ((veitchii x maxima) x veitchii) seeds? I see that's what you used for the N. splendiana x mixta. Live LFS worked for SirKristoff... I used Better-Gro Orchid Moss LFS.

    oh god did it work for me lol.
    i milled up some live LFS and mixed it in with peat that i nuked for about 15 seconds in the micro. cooled it down with water, then added the live LFS, sowed the seeds over the top and covered with plastic wrap. Seeds started germinating for me in about a week, and more are popping up, so far id say a good 60% of the seeds have germinated. more to come, many are about large enough to ship out. so i gotta get a few groups that i promised people out in about 2 weeks. looking good jimmy!!!!
    and my lighting that i used for them was 4x 20watt 24" coolwhite and daylight spectrum fluorescent tubes, in at the time of first germination, was intermediate/highland conditions

    Thanks, SK!

    I've traded just about as many of them away as I can. That's a lot, considering that I got very high germination rates, just like you. You got much faster germination, however.

    I'm sure I still have a few seeds left to wait to germinate.

    I was the lucky recipient of the seedlings. They are looking a bit sad now but I think they will take right off. The seedling roots were really long.
