Growing Tiare (Gardenia taitensis) from Seeds
After coming back from my honeymoon in Bora Bora, I decided to grow Tiare (Gardenia taitensis) as a reminder of our wonderful trip. I didn't have any luck finding a small plant, but did obtain 10 seeds (Rare Seed Source on eBay).
I planted the seeds in peat moss in a covered container. I've been able to keep the temp between 70 and 90 degrees.
The first seed germinated in 25 days.
To date, 8 of 10 seeds have germinated and a few have very small true leaves.
For some reason, they grow VERY slowly. Is there anything I can do to improve their environment and encourage more robust growth?
