I have two pots with seeds in them, they've been in pretty much 70-80F degrees, though one night did drop down to around 62F (quickly corrected). Humidity has been in the upper 90% range. Not great light, but probably (very roughly) in the 8 DLI range...they sit to the side of my Viparspectra xs1000. The grow mix is 50:50 peat and perlite with a bit of finely ground LFSM sprinkled on top of the peat/perlite mix...then the seeds. They've been percolating in the pots for 2+ weeks now. I know that's not a lot of time but I've also got a pot of D. capensis (large form) growing beside them in the same type pot, same grow mix, and in the same environment inside the same large container as the regia seed pots. The capes are going gangbusters...I think every cape seed I planted germinated...of course they do have a reputation for being weeds at times.
So, do cape seeds germinate faster than regia seeds? What is the usual time frame for D. regia germination? I'm letting them ride, no rush to a verdict here, just getting a little antsy. Thanks for hearing my desperate plea for help!
