seed treatment?

Post by Wm Erik Voss on Sat Oct 16, 2010 11:23 pm

I just received some dry seeds for p. bogotensis. Any tips for good germination? Overnight soak in the liquid from one of my edulis fruits? I have heard they can take several months to sprout. True?

With Passiflora seeds in general, I use strong tea instead of juice. Just because it is more accessible to me. I have no experience with P. bogotensis.

i have small experience of germination with p.bogotensis.

24h. in the liquid lemon juice and 6 months, 1/15 seeds p.bogotensis germination is dead 2 months.



j'ai une petite expérience sur la germination avec p. bogotensis.

je laisse les graines 24h. dans du jus de citron.

6 mois plus tard 1 graine sur 15 à germé et 2 mois plus tard elle est morte par manque de materiel adéquate. (une erreur de débutant)

I haven't had any experience with bogotensis either, but have had no trouble with antioquiensis. I didn't soak them in anything, planted into two pots, put one outside in early winter and kept the other warm. I had seedlings up and going outside in three weeks, the ones inside took much longer. Your weather has to be a lot like mine so I would try at least some of them outside in the shade.

I have enough seed to set up a small treatment trial and will post the results.

I have had no luck with bogotenensis seeds either. Would love to hear the results of your trial! What soaks are you going to try?

I recieved 10 seeds from a friend last year. 24 hours in passi juice(I used edulis), and then 24 in water. I then germinated them in a damp paper towel in a plastic bag in a shaded area. I do all my seeds in these bags as your able to check on the growth till a long enough root "tail" grows. Then with a good seed starting mix poke a hole with a pencil the depth of the 'tail'. and slide the 'tail' in leaving the seed part facing up at, or just under the soil line. Doing this should have most of them above soil in about a month. The seedlings enjoy higher humidity then their elder selves as well.
