Need Some Suggestions for Seed Set-up
I have two Adenium Obesum x Swazicum, one is a Pink Blush and the other is Crimson Sky. The Pink Blush's seed pods finally exploded on me last month so I got everything ready to start the seeds. Right now my set-up consists of a Dish Network cable box (for some reason it stays warm when it's off), a container with napkins that are kept moist all the time, another container the incubate the seed once germinated, a fine reptile mister, a temp. probe, and a 50 watt red reptile basking lamp. Everything is maintained at a temp. of 85F (I use the lids of the containers to adjust the temps). I only got a total of six seeds from both seed pods and only four were fertile. Unfortunately I managed to cook two of them, one has germinated and is almost an inch tall, and the other has yet to germinate due to some technical difficulties (for some reason the cable box got really hot the other day and unexpectedly dried out the napkins). I know I've wasted a few seeds due to being unexperienced but my crimson sky has two more seed pods that should be drying out in a month or two and these are much bigger. Hopefully I'll have a better success rate than 1:4...lol Here is my set-up, I guess the main reason for this post is suggestions and hopefully a few of you would be kind enough to share yours. I also have a 4 year old bearded dragon, a recently rescued mali uromastyx, and my brother has a crested gecko so that explains all the reptile related supplies.
(The small black seeds were collected from a ferocactus wislizeni in Tucson
