I might as well ask. I am considering ordering in some utric and/or genlisea seeds from over the pond. I know that the chances of successful germination are fairly slim when ordered this way but am tempted to try. Specifically, if/when availible, I am considering:
just about anything. I have yet to try my hand at growing a genlisea- last attempt at germinating seeds ended in soul crushing failure (even with GA3 treatment after several months)
- Mostly from the section Orchidioides (Alpina, campbelliana, jamesoniana, quelchii). But I love utrics and likely would end up with other stuff in my basket.
Last thoughts on this:
- I will be placing an order anyway for some other species (Drosera, Roridula, etc...) so this would not be a going out of my way thing.
- I am fully under the assumption that this is at best the purchase of a european lottery ticket (with some potential nice winnings) and at worst, a flat out donation to the EU.
- I have a small lot of seeds permit
Background done. My question is- does anyone have any particular experiences trying to get these seeds to go? Any species you might recommend which would be "easier" or at least more likely to produce results given appropriate accomodations (So in other words- I am willing to work for it a little). Any other thoughts you could kindly share?
I am kinda on the fence about it.... I really do know better...
