I have now handled two batches of Am. titanum from seed and have found them 
fairly easy.  The seeds were removed from the berry and planted in Fafard 3B (a 
peat/perlite potting soil that is quite open, holds a great deal of water but 
with excellent drainage) cut with about 15% extra perlite.  I keep the medium 
just barely moist and time to emerge from the soil has averaged about 6 
weeks.  I've had no problem with them kept in a bright greenhouse with about 2500 
footcandles (70% shade or so) and day/night temperatures of 80F/58F (about 
15C/27C).  Once the seedlings emerged, they have been given a dilute solution of 
Peters 16-16-16 fertilizer at nearly every watering.  

The seeds planted in September are now putting up their second leaf.  The 
largest of the seedlings is about a foot (30cm) tall.
