germinating poppies
    #2704284 - 05/20/04 03:07 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

hi, i planted my poppy seeds today in 6 different pots, because of lack of garden space (hope its not too late) and tonight it rained massively, flooding my pots.

My question is since they are merely germinating and not plants yet, would the flooding harm them, or actually be somewhat beneficial?

Also, is light neccessary for the seeds to sprout? Because I'd like to keep them indoors away from the elements for as long as possible.

One more question, how can I prevent my pots from flooding everytime it rains?

One more question lol, how long does it usually take from the time you plant until the time to slice the pods?

Thanks in advance, I'm retiring for the evening, and will be back tomorrow to check any responses and to do whatever is neccessary for my babies to grow.

seeds will start to germinate with relativly low ligt levels, but they will need light as soon as the start to sprout.
You'll know in a day or so if you have any flood survivors.
It's hit and miss. I had a heavy rainstorm once right after planting a small plot of poppy seeds, and they all survived. Then again, I had another plot that all died from the same rainstom.

yea they dont need any light to sproat in my experience. i put soem in a glass of water in a drawer and they sproated.

and i think if the seeds did not germinate the flood woud be fine. its just after tehy sproat they get very delicate.

remember poppys need well draining soil. add sand to the mix and put a bunch of pebbles and some sand in the bottom of the pot.
