Re: Anthurium hookeri germination

  • Subject: Re: Anthurium hookeri germination

Hi Ferenc,

I germinated some A. bellum and A plowmanii recently. I'd clean the seeds (remove all the pulb & wash them) and immediately place them onto some live sphagnum; I placed sphagnum in a glass jar and placed it at a warm spot. Germination was quite quick and no fungus etc. occurred. Repotting was necessary quite early, as even very small seedlings have long strong roots. 
If no live sphagnum is available some fine orchid bark is also possible, but I’d always prefer Sphagnum. 

Hope all works well!


Michael
