Re: A. griffithii help?!


I soaked my griffithii seeds in a cup of water for two days.  I meant to
soak overnight only but got lazy.  Then I sowed them in a mix of potting
soil to which I added half as much of perlite and of vermiculite.  I pushed
the seeds in only about half an inch, maybe a little more but no more than
one inch.  Then I poured a layer of vermiculite on top to a depth of about
3/4 inch.   I put saran wrap over the top to hold in moisture and placed
the seed tray on a wooden plank on top of the radiator by the window.  This
was sometime in March and in about three weeks they germinated nicely.
Afterwards, I just treated them like any old seedling.  They're still by
the window sill but I've turned off the radiator, only turning it on when
it's cold and rainy outside because it then gets cold and damp in the
kitchen which is where the windowsill is.  Oh, I also have a desk lamp with
a halogen bulb over the seedlings and I leave it on when it's cloudy
outside and every evening until 10 pm.  The seed tray has a whole bunch of
other arisaemas and they're all very happy looking.  I realize I'm not
being very professional about it, but it's working nicely.  Hope this
helps.
