What I found helpful was that in the members section there are a bunch of
documents.  Some of these are very handy for methods of sowing seeds.  I'=m
not much more than a newbie myself (sowed my first Arisaema seed just und=er
a year ago) but some of them are quite useful for different methods such =as
the Deno method etc.  When I started I had no idea at all, so it was usef=ul
to experiment.  Some work for YOU and others do not.  Experiment and find=out.

I mentioned the Deno method which uses damp paper etc for germination....=..
personally it has never worked for me.  I don't know why but it doesn't.
Others swear that it is the "only" way to do it, so never let anyone tell
you that their way is the only right way (This is not meant in any more
than a generalisation.... as far as I know no-one has every told me that,
just talked up a particular way as "better" than others).

Trial and error will let you find out what works for your personally as
your setup is different to anyone elses.  If you want to email me private=ly
I can tell you what has worked for me to this point.  I suggest you email
privately as I doubt my experiences are much use to others with more
experience...... Hopefully others with more can share their experiences t=o
the whole list for us all to read?.  I would like to hear what others hav=e
found works for them rather than theoretical.

Good Luck!  I'm sure you'll get hooked as badly as I have <grin>.  I have
so many little pots of Arisaema seedlings, either dormant or growing, and
am waiting patiently for some to die down and others to shoot once more.
Once you start it never ends.
