    Hey Everyone,
    I managed to get a N. lowii seed to germinate (so far just one). I really hope it lives....This is a first for me, after several failed nep seed attempts. Right now there is just a 1/8" or 1/4" little green shoot coming out of the seed coat. Well, the seed coat has fallen away alread, and it's just a little green...er...stick? Is it bad that the seed coat fell away so soon? I hope not....

    hey Dave, congrats, I'm still waiting on mine....I can see the seed but no signs of life yet. About how long did it take for yours to germinate? 2 months? 4 months?

    Hi Nep G.

    Well, I sowed these on June 6th I beleive (maybe the 5th?), so it hasn't even been a month. Anyway, it was exactly one week after I sowed the bical seeds from Pyro, so maybe he'll remember when he sent those to me. There is only one that's germinated so far, and I really didn't expect it so soon. I really hope to get some more to germinate....

    Oh, and even though it "fell" out of it's seed coat, it's still green as of this morning. I guess that's a good sign! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    News:
    Apparantly the falling out of the seed coat was not a bad thing. I now have a verifiable sprout! There are two ittsy bitsy seed-leaves! It's so cute....
