Because doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is not a sign of insanity but rather a sign of unrestrained optimism.

Did you not get any germination out of yours? I've been having a hard time germinating capillaris recently. I'm trying stratification to see if I get better results.

You probably already did, but try a little extra heat, ~80°F. That's what worked for me with the capi "Bertioga" when no one else was able to germinate them.

Order received.
Your order number is 1177.
I'll PM you shortly with a mailing address for your SASE.
Thank you for your order.

Reminder to all:
Please remember to write your Forum username and order number somewhere on the envelope or in a note.
I don't have access to a cross reference of real-world names linked to usernames.
Remembering these things helps me fill orders quicker.
Thank you.
