Propagating pachypodium

averil(8b)July 5, 2013

Hi folks, just wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I bought 5 pachypodium seeds, planted them in coir nests and after 2 weeks....nothing. I sent off for another 2 lots from plumeria2uk, densiflora and baronii. 2 weeks on nothing. I have used this method with adenium with a brilliant success rate. They are in a plastic box on a heat mat. The first seeds were rather dark brown whereas these are a more light caramel coloured and looked fresher. Before I send off for more is there something I'm not doing right? Or am I just impatient
Many thanks for any advice
Kind regards

I don't know much about seedery, but I wonder if now is the time to be starting them, even in the UK. I don't think much is being planted over here across the Pond until fall, even in similar latitudes as yours.

Thanks cactus, you could be right. I was planting adenium throughout the year last year and they germinated in days. I shall hang off a bit then and try later in the year. Many thanks for replying
Kind regards

I've never had any luck with pachypodium seeds. They seemed to rot very quickly even with high temps.
