Sv.: Pamianthe peruviana

I hope you haven't given up on the seeds though. I have had Hippeastrum seed grow into mature plants after having fungus on the seeds. And others I've lost. I understand that some fungus species can consume living plant cells, and others cannot. But it is always worth trying to get them through it because you cannot identify fungi by eye.


Also, my thoughts would be to steer clear of the perlite and even vermiculite. I have had initial success with Pamianthe with those mediums, only to have trouble later on. I have had great success with pumice mixed with orchid bark. Watch for mealy bugs  too.

I agree, 90°F does sound a bit warm. I've started these by floating the seeds on water at room temperature. Every few days the water can be changed if it becomes at all murky, and the seeds can be washed gently if mold develops. When you observe a root radicle starting, individual seeds can be placed in potting medium to grow.

 sounds very warm! I find them
 easy to germinate in cooler conditions.
