Seeds aare sprouting!!
After planting five types of Adenium on Monday evening, this morning I noticed one had begun to sprout! It's an Arabicum and it is already visible and pushing through the soil.
This time I have tried omething different as I've used those compressed coir pellets you soak for 5 mins and then pop a single seed into each one. They're in a simple on/off type electric propagator on the windowcill with a thermometer in it. The temp has been hovering between 25 and 30C so it seems to be having the desirred effect.
Has any one else used these pellet things as I was wondering after I set it all up, does the little membrane surrounding them restrict the roots?...as this is partly what we grow them for. I guess it must do to some extent, maybe best to let them grow on and then wash the coir away and set in proper Adenium soil....any thoughts out there?
