Got all the seeds planted yesterday. Used the vinegar method. Also tried to root some cuttings of my Temptaionx. Some in water in a beer bottle and some in expanding peat pellets with Rootone. Also put some Aristolochia cuttings in a beer bottle, they were end of the vine cuttings so I'm not sure if they'll take.

Roxxanne I just ordered from there last week and got them today. I got the Edulis mix (100 seeds) to play with. I'm still trying to figure out how to plant them since I'm not familiar with Passiflora.

What is the vinegar method? I have started them in lemon juice, but never heard of vinegar.

I have sprouts in the edulis mix and one sprout in the cincinnata. It's a start! It's cooling off here so I'll be bringing the little pots inside. Should I give them bottom heat????
I just purchased some plants from thomashawk on ebay, any relation, Gordon? He's in Buffalo.

Oh and the cuttings I got from her were crispy. She hasn't replaced them yet. I think I'll go email her right now.

And I tried starting cuttings from my temp. x temp. and they are all rooting. So now that I know I can do it I'm looking at more cuttings on ebay and where ever else I can purchase them from.

The edulis mix I bought has begun to germinate as well. I have two seedlings that have popped out and are just shedding their seed coats and many more that are starting to creep out of the soil or perlite covering.

Good test run for me. I will be buying more of her seeds :)

Now if only the cotton leaf seeds would germinate. I wasn't as thorough with their planting as I should have been.

I am not thoroughly sold just yet. I am going to hold off on judgement. I was very careful with the planting. I understand that older seeds take time to germinate, so we'll see. She did replace the dead cutting. The second wasn't dead but not in great shape. She puts them in a water tube but does nothing to protect the leaves from loosing hydration so when they arrive the water tube is dry and the leaves are starting to dry out. I think she should place the leaves in damp paper towels and use priority mail instead of first class. She did however send 2 other cuttings as an apology which I thought was nice. I have several cuttings coming from thomashawk from ebay. I'll let you know how those look when they get here.

When I had some seeds for lots of different varieties, I found that some didn't germinate until the 2nd year. A friend who runs a flower farm told me some may take a year or more to germinate.

I'm going to wait as long as possible. I planted the cotton leaf first and I really liked these.

I had very little luck with sees I purchased from Where*The*Wild*Things*Grow on ebay. I followed her instructions and using the little cups she sends. When I asked about it, she said that some can take up to 1 1/2 years to germinate.

The seed I purchased from rugirok and landofthefound on ebay germinated just fine. I won't hesitate to purchase from either of these 2 again.

Just this month I purchased 3 plants and a bunch of cuttings from thomashawk (also on ebay). The plants are doing great and I found 4 buds on one of them this morning. It was the first time I have tried cuttings so asked him alot of questions and then followed his directions. After finding the buds on the plant today, I checked my cuttings and was elated to find roots. Out of the entire group of cuttings, I think there is only one that won't be ok and I have to blame myself for that because the cutting looked just as healthy as the others he sent. I'll definitely buy from him again.

Not real happy with the results. I don't think I'll be ordering from them again. It's a shame too, they have seeds that I can't find anywhere else. I wonder where they get their seeds???????
