So I think I will cold strat about 75% of each seed this week. I want to be sure I have some backups just in case. I am having about a 98% success rate in germinating seeds since I started this hobby. Hopefully I can keep that rate going. I am really excited about the cobra lily's coming up. I have my replacement one in it's new home and I would love to add some babies to see how well they do in comparison.

Cold strat VFT seeds? :? Seems I read someone say that they did that but I wasn't aware of it being a regular thing to do. Of couse, there's a LOT I don't know!!! :lol: You definitely have an assortment there to work with!!! ;)

The cobra plants will be cool. I'll have to beat you talk you out of one down the road. :mrgreen:

Well, I could be wrong but I thought it was in a post here that said it was better to cold strat them than not to. I will let you know how the cobra lily's do. I can possibly part with a seedling or two once they decide to germinate. I would rather do that than to keep sending the seeds across the country.

Yes, I will but it might be some time before I get back on the forum. I will post results when available but going to be taking a hiatus from anything else here for a while.

Hiatus did not last long.

Just an update. After roughly 2 weeks, other than the Cobra Lily seeds which are in cold strat, I have germination of all seeds I won in February's photo contest. Thank you again Matt, Leigh and all that voted for me. I will post another pic in a couple more weeks.
