Do you keep your Aroideana around? We had quite a lot in the
last issue (Vol 30) on this topic …
You are breaking this old editor’s heart!
I have an Anthurium (the common one sold in the plant shops as Anthurium
grew 3 inflorences at a time, so it colud self pollinate itself. Now the
cone-shaped berries are
ripening. They push thenselves out of the inflorescense as they ripe one after
one, and then
they fall down very easily. The colour is quite pale. What does spread the
seeds? In my
opinion they fall down too easily and are too pale to be eaten by birds.
My main question is about seed germination. I can see two small seeds in each
would like to get some advise on germinating them. Should I pot them as soon as
them out of the berry? Should I simply place them in wet moss? Should they be
some kind of acid before? Should I bleach them in clear water for a day? Should
I dry them?
Or what to do?
Thanks for any info
