Zaka, what do you put under the seeds? is that some form of perilite? and do you just mist the seeds everyday or what? I am interested in your treatment of them because you have gotten such good results. I at one point had some Cappi seeds but could never get them to germ.
Irie Alice,
I've found that medium coarse vermiculite, (from the garden center) is the best.
I just damp the verm & tent in a ziplock.
I don't usually have to spray them very often, once a week at most, so long as the verm is damp, it should be cool.

Did the rooting hormone do anything beneficial  like establishing your seedlings roots  or their viability? :baffled:

Irie X,
I don't know if it did assist???
My intentions for using it was for an anti-fungal properties. At which I think it did help!
Considering the way I treat the germination process! I haven't even bothered check any of the trays in the last 10 days!!!

Irie,
So I'll attempt to give a proper leaf description of each of the 4 types.
They seem to be quite distinct, the most similar being the "Red" & "White". The "Black" being the most impressive.
"Black"; Lanceolate, Acuminate
"Yellow; Oblanceolate,

"Red"; Cordate
[attachment=0:1810rvr0]DSCN3747a.JPG[/attachment:1810rvr0]
"White"; Cordate.....Has some interesting hairs that are very distinctive!

I'll post pics of each soon.

much appreciation Zaka for your continuing pictorial.  all your plants look healthy & appreciate your love.  I am curious about the outside conditions that they enjoy, like average humidity, night & day temperatures, and general latitude (tropical, sub-tropical, temperate).  thank you Zaka!
