Passionflower germination
« on: June 29, 2020, 03:52:50 am »

my passionflower seeds are not germinating any tips guys?

I've tried soaking in water over ight before sowing as well as just sowing. They never produce. Am I doing it wrong?

They need a longer soak to get rid of germination inhibitors I think. Try soaking for 48 hours in rain water or spring water. Then plant in seed starting mix.

I scratch the seed shell slightly then sprout in a plastic bag with a slightly wet paper towel. They where still very slow to germinate . good luck    8)

soak your seeds in white vinegar for a few days.. I soaked mine for a week till they started popping open.

I was having 0% rate before hand; much better after.

I left a bunch to stratify over the winter in wet soil and they had much better germination than those planted from packet to warm conditions
