  Re: [aroid-l] Germinating titanium seeds
From: <plantguy at zoominternet.net> on 2004.06.24 at 01:25:00(11664)
I'm trying the 1:1 mix of sphagnum and perlite suggested by Peter Boyce as
one possibility in an earlier thread. I put my hewitii seed in this and
once I added bottom heat I've got 7-out-of-10 now up. Hopefully the titanum
will appreciate a similar treatment. Once they germinate I know that Phipps
Conservatory here in Pittsburgh, PA grows there titanum (about 6-8 of them)
in a 1:1 mix of turface and small pine bark so I thought I'd give that a
try. If any of the experts here think that is a bad idea I'd happily change
some of the seedlings to a different mix. As always, thanks for any advice
in advance. Hopefully in the next couple of years the Phipps titanum will
be making the news with some blooms!!
