Trying something new since I think I may be winning with the crape myrtle :))

How is the best way to propagate silver dollar eucalyptus?
I read that they grow easily from seed but I can't find a picture of the seed or how to gather it or when to gather.

Does it root from cuttings because that would suit me better even if it was difficult.

RE: silver dollar eucalyptus

Thanks. Can you describe the seed to me? The ones that I have seen recently have a cross shaped thing on the stem with the leaves. Is this the seed?

Eucalyptus seeds are like dust. What you describe Aquarius 1974 is probably the fruit. If they are ripe, place them in a paper bag and they will eventually drop the seed,

Eucalyptus, for the vast majority of us, are as good as impossible to propagage from cuttings.

RE: silver dollar eucalyptus

Does anyone have any ideas of how I should go about seeding eucalyptus silver dollar? Do I need to cover the seed? What temp. does it need to germ? How long does it take to germ and be ready for a salable 4" pot?
