  Re: [aroid-l] Germinating titanium seeds
From: Ronmchatton at aol.com on 2004.06.23 at 14:20:53(11660)
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.
