Germinating Baby Hawaiian Woodrose seeds.

Nice simple TEK this one!

I have been asked a few times this week how to germinate these little blighters. So i thought this would be the best way to explain,

 As you can see, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds are not tiny, but small enough to be a bit fiddly, especially if you have big hands!

The seed has a round and a pointed end.

Snip the point off the pointed end to help the seed germ break free, as the shell is quite a tough one!

Then plant in damp vermiculite, about 1/2 inch deep. It dosen't matter what way up you plant it.
Cover with cling film (saran wrap) or a clear plastic food bag and keep at about 75 Degrees F.
Seed will take about 5-10 days to pop.
When the seedling is about 2" tall, re-pot into compost/vermiculite/perlite (1:1:1) mix and put in a sunny spot. (Try and avoid direct sun until the plant is established)
