Has anyone had luck growing pipevines from seed? I have tried numerous times, numerous ways to no avail. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I grow this one with no problem.
White Veined Dutchman's Pipe (Aristolochia fimbriata)

Which ones are you trying to grow, and.... What are you doing with the seed?

The one I have is practically a weed.

I also have this one...

Virginia snakeroot (Aristolochia serpentaria)

Again, no problems.

As far as recommendations...
Scratch around in the mulch and drop in the seed.

I am SO jealous. I have tried Aristolochia Durior and Aristolochia macrophylla. Living in Ohio I don't have too many choices.
I've tried soaking, stratifying in the fridge for 90 days, potting soil, perlite, sphagnum moss, wet paper towels in a zip lock bag but nothing has worked for me. Believe me I think I've tried everything. I have had some in a tray right now for weeks that don't look to be doing anything. :(
Do you have any tricks I could try?

start with fresh seed...
Find someone with a vine. Collect seed... plant immediately.

I don't know anyone with a vine. I've never seen any around here. This is a struggle. I've honestly been looking for YEARS.

I've grown Aristolochias from seed...A. fimbriata, usually I just plant fresh seed in pots. Eventually, some come up. But I bought a couple of Virginia Snakeroot plants and also a couple of Woolly Dutchman's Pipe plants once. The Virginia Snakeroot eventually multiplied without my efforts. Those plants don't get very big, but it makes seed pods and I think it also spreads underground. So, as long as it is planted in a good area and taken care of, the investment pays off!
