As bad as I generally am with seed I've got the bug in my bottom to try some of these big and beautiful utrics I fawn over pictures of and would like to get going in my vivariums. Seed will take plenty of time to get anything going enough to transplant some in the vivs I'm sure but it's economical at least, IF it works out.
I should be receiving seed of the following shortly:
U. alpina (big flower form)
I was planning to fill up small 3" net pots with ground LFS, fine bark and perhaps some fine grit for drainage, not sure if the cherrystone might make it too heavy for the young stolons so I may just do the bark and shredded LFS. I can use live LFS ontop of the pot if that would be better to sow on. Does anyone think the net pots should sit in maybe 1/4" of water until I see signs of germination on the surface then allow them to start drying to just moist conditions as for neps/helis?
Any tips for working with these seed would be much appreciated as I've never tried Utrics from seed before.
