Sorry to post to the general forum but wanted to say a BIG THANKS to Wilbert and the Amorph. yum. seeds he sent to me. By the way, Wilbert can you email me your snail mail address, thanks! For the aroid content I will pose a query:
I have some seeds from Anchomanes dalz. (thanks again to Wilbert) I have them on a mist bench with a pot that is half full of Turface. On top of this is a 1/2 sand 1/2 peat mix. This is where the seeds reside. The seeds are starting to get too moist I think. Is this mix appropriate ? They have been on the mist bench for about 6 weeks. Should they be on the mist bench? Any help greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays

I am keeping mine in the same mix as you, 1/2 peat, 1/2 sand with a little
added perlite. The terrarium they are in is warm and moist,( I have aquarium
heaters plunged into jars of water). My Anchomanes seeds came up within
about a month of recieving them. If I can remember correctly, Wilbert said
to keep the soil moist but well drained so I would imagine your mist tables
are fine. You may want to remove them from the mist tables for a little
while, let them dry up a bit, then put them back. You could even try to put
the seeds in a plasic baggy or terrarium set-up in a warm area. The humidity
in the bag/terrarium should be enough for the plants to sprout.

But I said not REALLY moist in the sense that it is wet. Just a little.
