Arum spp germination

  • Subject: Arum spp germination
  • From: "Pacific Rim" <paige@hillkeep.ca>

Arum and Arisaema seeds of many spp., frozen for from 1-5 years, depending 
on the taxon and my interest, were sown two months ago in a cool greenhouse 
and are now germinating en masse.

I clean, surface-dry, chill then freeze my seeds. Not sure how those stages 
should be regulated, but I have done enough side experiments to know that 
sanitation and freshness are key. My problem now is that I had not 
anticipated the need to transplant seedlings so soon when I assigned space 
in my greenhouse. I think I will let them crowd in ther trays and pots, but 
feed them up; though on the whole I would rather be in Philadephia.
