    So I'm getting some erio seeds
    I need to know if fresh Amazonia will not melt the seeds off?
    Or how long will it be before the nh4 runs out in a emmersed setup?
    There will be no water changes as its an emmersed setup
    and i really really really want to grow these seeds out
    I've done a lot of emmersed, i have done seeds before, but never fresh Amazonia
    Can someone help out and please advise?
    Basically i want successs in the seeds without them going to waste.
    Please advise

    I'm currently growing Erio Ratgur--forget rest of name-- in soil setup, so im assuming my soil has more ammonia and acidity than aquasoil, shouldn't be a problem. Hell, they sprouted when my soil was pretty flooded.

    If you want a better method, perhaps look into just wrapping them in a wet papertowl for germinating, I know this can be done for seeds of terrestrial plants.

    Thank you for your reply, I know erios dig the nh4, but I just wasn't sure if Amazonia would have too much of it.

    So what did you do? Just sprinkle seeds on wet soil? they're too small to really plant

    i sprinkled them on a 1cm thick soilbed. Made the mistake of flooding it with water so i only got like a 50% sprout rate. more might have sprouted, but its in the same setup that im growing baby tears in, so they are difficult to locate.
