  1. 1. How do you treat the seeds before sowing?

    • I don't treat them
    • I scarify them, sandpaper
    • I use GA3
    • I use sulfuric acid
    • I soak in water
    • I put them in water till they germinate
    • I cut the pointed end of the seed
    • I use smoke-water, or ashes
  2. 2. How do you sow the seeds?

    • On the surface of substrate
    • Covered with substrate
    • On top of moist cottonwool pads (or something like it)
    • In a glass of water
  3. 3. Where do you place the seeds?

    • On the windowsill, covered with plastic (or in windowsill-greenhouse for instance)
    • On the windowsill, uncovered
    • In the greenhouse
    • Outside
  4. 4. Where do you place the seeds directly after germination?

    • On the windowsill
    • In the greenhouse
    • Outside
    • Outside, but under a "roof" to protect from the rain

First one germinated yesterday. Its now 2 weeks since they were sown. I hope it won't damp off!

I had better germination then previous years using this method, but still very low. I think 15% germinated.... But they all damped off later... So still problems here!

Hi, very interesting post. :)

"How do you sow the seeds?" . There is another very good option: on wet paper or wet tissue paper, and another times into a glass of water. I never tried it, but a friend of tried it with great success. :tu: .

Some photos of a friend who did it.




And another times, silica sand and perlite, or 100% perlite or 100% vermiculite it is fine too.



Best regards!
