Anyone know of a good website to help me with seed starting? I have hundreds of bromeliads in the yard, and often they set seed. I just have not found a user friendly site to help me! I thought it would be is timely, but it is just for fun! Thanks! Greg

My first CFBS meeting I went to had a speaker and his description is similar to what is discussed here at this BSI link . I have been watching mine and have yet to see any I think are viable. If you have some to share I would like to try . Ill send postage...
Good luck

Here is a link that might be useful: Growing from seed

RE: seed starting

Each genera has different seed starting methods but most grow easily once you know what they are. Some in fact like weeds.

RE: seed starting

Easy seed starting. Deep chinese food containers, 1.5cm peat moss. Wet, pour off excess water and microwave for 4mins with the lid on but leave one corner up a little.
Allow to cool, squeeze seed from pod onto top. I usually spread the seed a bit with a toothpick. Push the lid on.
I keep mine inside near a window where they get the early morning sun. I move them outside whem a few cm high.Most seed will germinate within 10 days.
