    Talking

    i placed about 50 dionaea seeds on some peaterlite mix (50:50) and put it in a plastic bag with some water at the bottom, and put a thermometer inside. i put it outside in the sun and about 6 hours later the temp was over 115 (the thermometer doesn't go any higher!). the white perlite thats on the top of the medium turned slightly brown at the top! the seeds where there for the whole 6 hours, burning. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] are the seeds gonna be ok? i brought the inside and put them under a light bulb, pretty bright and the temperature is about 90 degrees. Anyone had something like this happen or know if my seeds will be fine? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Gonna take a guess here and say they are probably cooked [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I wouldn't get rid of them though because they might just surprise you.



    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    i feel like a murderer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .. if 80% or more germinate it would serve as a good experiment

    Seeds can be amazing little things. I don't know if it will happen with your VFT seeds, but I've planted a few seeds to things that aren't native to Las Vegas' super hot summer environment, and even after being baked in the dirt day after day, they still managed to grow.
    Some random words.
