I sowed seeds the Deno was back in late April. This is how the plant is 6 weeks down the line.

And here's the moist towels, all labeled...and now sitting on top of the frig. By the way, I can't seem to find the link to the Deno Method...I'd like to read it again, just to make sure I do things right.

Mossrose I too received seeds from psilo and tried both methods - the conventional way and the deno way. I have had success with both and will hopefully have some pictures soon. By the way, I think Mark posted the thread on the discussion forum but I stand to be corrected...Mark???

Here's the germinated seed. Only one has germ'ed so far. By the time I found it the first set of leaves were developing. The photo's aren't that good...I couldn't get a close enough shot and it be clear enough to tell what the heck it was. But I tried.

I've set the others outside in the shade for some warmth. It's been so very hot here that my a/c is running 90 to nothing and it gets too cold in here for them to ever be warm. I'll only leave them for a few hours. Hopefully long enough for them to break dormacy.

And I've potted it up. Did I pot it correctly??

It looked like all root with a green end. I didn't think I should have potted the green end and all...did I do right?

Mark, I think its just right,,today there are two healthy leaves visible and it's already somewhat taller. Planted another one today, a G. pratense. No photo's...am charging the batteries.
