I find the seed raising discussions on this Forum of Gene, Rick and others absolutely fascinating.
I have no experience in the use of fluorescent lights ,baggies, etc as living in a somewhat 'soft' climate i just sow seed and place it outside as soon as i receive it,regardless of the time of the year.
If i consider the pots are getting too wet i place a poly sheet over the pots .It's not a fail safe method - Sure :) in an individual pot i lose a few to rot but not all however ,as a number do come up.
Following are current pics with the date of sowing --unfortunately i haven't kept records of when germination occured ,(might need to look at doing so from now on).
Some of the seed trays .
Muscari macrocarpum -- x Tasmania sown in late Nov 2012-- My thumb shows the size of the small pots that I generally use.
Clintonia udensis-- x AGC of BC sown early Feb 2010.
Lilium wigginsii --x Gene sown mid spring ,beginning of Nov 2011 .
Pulsatilla turczaninovii --x Rick sown early winter ,middle of June 2012.
