Re: [IGSROBIN] germination of P alchemilloides


Ingrid,

Spoke to Carol and am relaying her information here:

First, if the plant is producing seeds, they should be viable.  If the seeds
are mature enough that they are "bursting out" we are assuming that the
individual seeds each have their little fluffy tails out.  If they do, they
are mature and are ready to be planted.

The temperature the mother plant is grown in should not have much effect on
the viability of the seeds.  The amount of water given to the mother plant
would have much more effect than the temperature.

The seeds should be kept at warmer temperatures once planted in the planting
mix, however.  If it is too cold for the seeds to germinate in the planting
mix, and the mix is moist, they are likely to rot rather than germinate.

You might want to confirm that you friends scarified the seeds before
planting.  That would have the greatest effect on the length of time needed to
sprout.

Hope this helps,

Cindi
