    Hey!

    If you don't mind me asking, what media did you sow them on?

    BTW, I got your D. tokaiensis seeds, they're all sowed and ready to go, and I'm just waiting for them to sprout! Thanks again Kris!

    Sincerely,

    Jimmy

    I used equal parts peat and sand (sealed in a bag), along with an experiment. If the second works out I'll let you guys know.

    I sowed my U. Alpina seeds that I got from Pyro yesterday also.
    Whenever two man meet there are really six people present.
    There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other
    sees him, and each man as he really is.

    Ive got mine too. Thanks Pyro!

    But i have a question....

    Ive got the cup like Pyro said, that has the drainage (well I made one out of a nice clean starbucks cup) and then Ive got the sphagnum moss making the wick out of the bottom.

    Now do I fill the container the rest of the way with the peat/perlite and then sow the seeds and then place a layer of sphag on top or can I sow the seeds into the moss itself. I couldnt really tell from the post where Pyro talks about how to sow them (It could have been a day I had a short attention span...Im going to go back and read it again just to make sure I dont understand)

    Thanks for your help!

    Just sow on the surface of the peat mix and you should be fine. After a year or so you may need to transfer them. Or not, they can be spastic...

    ok

    I ended up sowing them in a peat/perlite/chopped up sphagnum substrate. They are in the starbucks cup and in a plastic zip bag now and in a warm window. Hopefully that will do the trick!
    *crosses fingers*

    I still have about half of the seeds in the packet...if it doesnt work Ill give it another go.
