    How do you grow U. campbelliana

    I've got some seed incoming from across the pond... what are the currently accepted cultivation and germination philosophies?

    Pictures too please

    TIA,
    Av

    No pics but I grow this like I grow U. jamesoniana. I know a couple of the German growers have been growing it on treefern fibre slats with great success so there is an idea too. Never grown it from seed but I would assume it is like the others in the group and the seed is short lived so get it sown pretty quick.

    The seeds are real small, Av! Just don't get your hopes up like I did.

    sheesh, what seed?.... I needed a loupe dude,
    Ill be honest... I didnt see any seed, I turned the paper upside down and shook over the substrate.... there was one point when the light was just right... or maybe it was wishful thinking... I just dunno LOL

    I think I sowed some seed, but i wouldnt bet money on it

    Hahaha, lol. I'd say they don't look too viable, do they?

    I just harvested some nelumbifolia x longifolia seed; it looks like what I would have expected from the campbelliana seed -- a greenish center with a clear seed coating, kinda like asian rice candy.

    But they're still bigger than pygmy drosera seed! Ever ordered that stuff? Can't hardly see them at all.

    Good luck. I hope someone in the U.S. gets these to sprout.

    You can not compare campbelliana to nelumbifoli as the seed for these are radically different. The seed of campbelliana ought to be very fine but similar to this in appearance:

    I'll let you guys know how mine look when they come in. From Pyro's picture they don't look all THAT tiny though I'm sure that's a macro shot (and a slightly different species). I have a couple different loupes I can use. I certainly hope we aren't getting 'invisible' seed .

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
