    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I can't get N. mirabilis seeds to germinate if my life depended upon it. what else do I need besides moisture, media, window sill, 80+ degrees?

    I'm originally from the Bronx and grew up on the Island. Grew up saying 'Flawrida' and 'Awrange' and 'cawfee'. Not to mention 'shaw' for sure and shore. But not anymaw. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Jim,

    A bit odd not being able to get mirabilis seed to germinate, it should be one of the easiest species of all. However, given the broad distribution, there is some variability in germination rates and conditions.

    The only thing I can think of is that the seed may be too old. Mirabilis seed, when fresh, should germinate around 28 days after sowing.

    how long would some ventricosa seeds take to germinate? How fast would it take for them to produce decent sized pitchers? (3 inches or more)
