11/20/03 - Sonia:
I didn't want to show my work before since it is very rudimentary.
September 11th I put each seed in a small plastic cup in sphagnum
moss and covered with sand to keep the sphagnum in place.
I live for my babies that are growing in a bucket; they have
to be moved every day from my kitchen stove at 7:30 am to the
back yard. Under the Caracas sun they spend the day until 6 o'clock
when they return to the stove. The temperature is kept at around
24 to 26 C (75-79 F); if it gets higher, they are moved to the
I give them oxygen through a balloon pump at least 3 times
a day and I used the water of our house that is purified. So
far I have changed the water 3 times. Fernando denies to me the
fertilizer to which I am addicted.
