Desmanthus illinoiensis cultivations questions.
    #1855494 - 08/27/03 06:06 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Recently I aquired a few dozen Desmanthus illinoiensis seeds and after spending an hour searching for information on the cultivation of this species the only really useful data that I aquired was that the seeds need to be soaked in order to get them to germinate. However this is only so helpful for my quest. I need to know how long the seeds need to be soaked and any post soaking requirements for germination to be successful. I also need to know if any kind of fertilization is required and if so what kind would work best. I have access to 10-20-10 at the moment. Also I do not know if indoor cultivation is possible. all the information I found was for outdoor projects. and if indoor cultivation is doable then would florescent lighting be sufficient or would hps do the job better. thanks in advance for anyone that can help me out..

you can basically just through those seeds on some dirt then water it.
ive heard of scaring them too.they are very easy to germinate.

I basically threw mine in some soil, watered heavily, and presto. Desmanthus illinoiensis is very resilient. Mine have withstand 105 degrees, and it's said the can withstand 4 degrees(I think.

It's very odd- I have head terrible luck planting this plant. I had good luck suprisingly indoors, thought the plants were sort of small (for a desmanthus). Outdoors I planted somet this year and we got liek 50+ in. of rain (no shit) and they just rotted and I thought that they were resilient to damn near anything. Two years ago I tried some outdoors and they died from NOT BEING WATERED. Again - WTF. Somehow though indoors under the dim edge of my HPS spectrum they thrived. Most people like you guys say they just have to throw them about like they are fucking applseeds and they grow like grass. Who knows? Good luck. Also - A mild fish fert. works wonders for most anything.

Oh- and no need to soak or scar. Like cdchriscd said- just throw them in the ground.
