I feel compelled to share this recent experience because of the huge amount of debate and (mis)information available online in regard to Ceph seed germination. I was completely astounded by the results but at the same time I can't really take any credit for them. Like several other of you, I was very fortunate enough to obtain 2 different kinds of super fresh, viable, Ceph seeds (2 peoples bay x Gull Rock Rd and Mike's super fast) from snapperhead51's (John) recently. All I did was read and follow John'd radically (no pun intended) different Ceph seed germination instructions.
Regardless after only two days of floating immersed in water, almost 3/4 of my seeds have begun to germinate and have radicles emerging from their seed coats!!!! Here are only a few pics of the many newly germinated seeds
No stratification what so ever, just 2 days of floating in distilled water...kind of mind blowing.

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
