Hi John,
I tend to use the floatation method for the Rhodophiala I've grown from
seed. Most species tend to germinate very quickly, although some of the
'alpine' species such as R. rhodolirion can be a bit slow to germinate in my
experience. I tend to float them in petri dishes now rather than other
containers and seem get less mouldy seeds as a result.
