What to do with seeds?

54641210dFebruary 15, 2013

Hey guys,

I bought some seeds from a recommended Ebay seller and they'll be coming in around March. My question is, should I plant them immediately when I get them or wait a few months for warmer weather? They'll be at least one month old due to time of transport and I don't know when it was harvested. Would it be safe to wait?

Also, I have a question on germinating. There were mixed opinions on whether or not the seeds should be soaked beforehand. What do you guys think?

Hi 54641210d,
There are definitely different procedures used for planting up the adenium seeds. All based on trials.
I prefer planting the seeds in Jan.-Mar. so that they are 9-10 months going into the winter months when they need to be inside kept warm. I have kept some with supplementary lighting throughout the winter so that they would not go dormant. The second winter I do not use the light with them.
You can hold off with planting and it will not be a problem.
I do soak mine for anywhere from 2-3 hrs. Typically with the seeds that I have started they usually start heaving the soil within 5 days.
