    The most important thing to remember when trying to geminate utrics is prayer. Whatever your deity of choice, pray long and pray often. Ask he/she to show mercy upon your endeavors and do everything within his/her power to coax life from your tiny seeds.

    Just put them on the growing media of you choice and put them alongside your other plants. Then wait.

    And pray.

    So True!
    Utrics are funny little bu**ers and they will decide when (or if) to germinate no matter what you do to help them along!

    Fortunatley Bisquamata (especially if its the typical form) is a very easy germinator. Its one of the species that you find spontaniously pooping up in other plant pots. Just sow them on the surface of a peat/sand mix keep moist and wait. Germination can take anything from a few weeks to a year so don't be too hasty throwing those pots out!
