questions on sceletium germination
    #2952962 - 08/01/04 07:04 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I was curious if any of you guys know what kind of soil mixture would be nice for a sceletium plant? Starting from seed. Is a traditional potting mix adequate? What about feritilization?

Here's what I did:

I used John Innes number 3 (a general purpose compost, not very rich, and it drains well, too), mixed with about 1/3rd sand. Fill it into a pot, and then sieve some on top, to give a layer of fine soil that the roots can easily get started in.
Put the seeds on top of the soil, cover very thinly with sand, give it a bit of water from the bottom, put inside a plastic bag, and then put it into a bright place with bottom heat. The first sprouts should appear in a few weeks.

I've never fertilised, I just re-pot into the same mix when they look too big for their pots.

The temps have to be cool. I got one out of 10 to germ in the summer and 9 of 10 in the winter. They like temps around 70 to germ and better yet is a temp fluctuation of 60 at night and 70 in the day.

Weird... I had 5/6 germinate :confused:.
Nights were cool, though, since they were planted on Dec 24th, and the heat pad was on the same cycle as the lights.
