germinating plumeria seeds
Hello everyone! My husband and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and fell in love with plumerias! Since then, we have been obsessed with trying to grow them ourselves but haven't had much luck. :( We thought some of you that have had success might have some words of wisdom on what we should possibly do differently with our next batch of seeds to hopefully get some sprouts!
Background: We have a heating mat (set at 78 degrees) and a mini greenhouse with grow light and are using cactus soil
okay - so here is what we have tried:
1) We have been drenching the soil, then let the water drip out, and push the seed into the top
2) We have tried soaking the seeds in a wet paper towel overnight (inside the greenhouse) and planting them after they plump up
3) We also put the seeds in a tupperware container with some water and let them soak before planting
Current score: 0/20...help! :) We don't want to give up but are getting discouraged...
Oh - and we already tried a cutting - failed as well...and we have an already rooted cutting currently in its hibernation state which we will hopefully see some results from in the spring...
Thanks for any advice you can give! :)
