What’s germinating in the hot box?

Recommended Posts

NatureGirl

Just checked my hot box in GH, lots of things germinating. I use a colored plastic container so no light gets in, otherwise the spaghum moss molds. Temps range between 80F at night - 120F in the afternoon, when sun shines on it. But mostly during the day it’s about 100F. 

Kentiopsis oliviformis, Chamaedorea elaitor, Licuala ‘sumawongii’ (many already removed and planted), Allagoptera arenaria, and Syagrus schizo. Plus many more....

NatureGirl,

Do you germinate most of your seeds in this manner?

I only have Sabal Palmetto & Chamaedorea radicalis going right now. I use the perlite ( w/ a little water) & plastic container method.

Yes, in the summer. In Winter the baggies are inside the house on a heat mat. Once sprouted seeds have enough roots in the baggie I transfer them to community pots until they are big enough to plant in their individual seedling pots. Here's some Caryota no after they have been transferred, and growing for a while. Soon they'll be ready to pot individually.
