Just checked my Glog and it was 10 days.


I am tempted to put the one I revived under the  AG  lights...but don't want to push my luck...

it's the bottom of the 9th and I'm 1 run ahead so don't want to blow this save.esp.,

in front of the home crowd. :rofl:

I  don't have anything much to add CD...my seeds,with one exception,   were done in late Spring 

versus Winter.Didn't use lights..I put them outside away from the sun & misted  as necessary.

I did have one this yr that germinated quickly in the  Aerogarden.& that was not to be...I still think

of that seedling & how it grew so fast ...what a pity.


I read  what Jukka Kilpinen wrote about growing conditions but did not see anything about the actual germination

technique he used.

Humidity yes...

Copied from Fatalli.net

'One growing hint might be that the plants don't take much water in from the soil (due to the lack of precipitation), but mostly from the air, which might explain the hairy structures of the leaves (the hairs increase the total surface area, which might help to absorb water).  During the Dry Season, fog occurs so often that it even gives the season its name, "Garúa", which means fog in Spanish.'


Its a fascinating plant yet so finicky... but worth the effort nonetheless.

Fingers xed.
