Dennis my experience with still air and hippeastrum seeds has been negative. I grew over 700 Hippeastrum seeds in window boxes with bottom watering,under flourescent lights. I put them on the floor of an empty closed room. I lost a lot of seeds to damp off,  mold and unknown rot.When I put a box fan on them at slow speed,the problem stopped. Del

Oops... I guess I meant long term.  I thought well the terrarium might be a
good nursery for them until they get to be 1 or 2 years old.  I put 3 seeds
in.  LOL.  The rest I'm sending to Dell tomorrow for the BX.
