I just got my seeds in the mail and they are HUGE. Even after looking
at pictures of them for years I was not prepared for just how enormous
these things are.
Now can someone let a novice like me know the best way to germinate
them and care for them? I've read they germinate easily but are
difficult to care for untill they get some size.
Ive got mine in a soil
" recommended compost mix (as used at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) is
2 parts loam
2 parts coir
1 part grit
2 parts fine bark
2 parts medium bark
2 parts perlite or vermiculite.
This is a very free draining mix so be prepared to feed at least twice
a week with a balanced fertilizer (we strongly recommend Miracle Gro).
Decrease watering and feeding during autumn and keep barely moist in
frost free conditions over winter. Look for signs of growth (usually
late spring to early summer) and gradually increase watering."
planted in 6" pots with plastic bags over them, and i plug the
propogator in in the eves at the moment, its been a bit colder here in
UK the last few nights!
Both my hewitti seeds germinated happily in this.
The soil info was taken from this page
