Dear Jani,I have grown many Nephthytis from seed. If they still have the orange seed coat around the seed then put the entire berry in the soil and keep warm and moist. Germination is very slow, often many weeks but is almost 100 percent with this method. Removing the orange seed coat seems to reduce the germination rate!Regards,Geoffrey KibbyOn 28 Feb 2006, at 15:52, ?goston J?nos wrote:Dear All,I received a packet of 2 Nephthytis afzelii seeds.

Dear Jani,

Clean off the fruit-covering from the BIG seeds using water, then place the
seeds about 1/2 covered on a well draining 'jungle mix' soil (or make one w/
chopped sphagnum or peat moss, coarse sand, decomposing oak leaves, mix in a
little fungicide). Keep the pot just 1/2 full with the soil mix so that
you can cover the top w/ clear plastic wrap with holes punched in it for
GOOD air circulation, keep them moist and watered and in a warm, well-lit
place .

Julius
