Growing HBWR.
    #4312419 - 06/19/05 12:59 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Is it too late to plant HBWR in the midwest (Missouri/Illinois area)?

not realy. they dont flower untill at least thier second year so ... you will need to winter indoors. it cant handle temps below like 50F. mine is 2 and a 1/2 i started in indoors i like march or something. Also dont put it in blazeing sun, mine did a lot better in partial shade.
good luck man

They dont set seed unless there grown in there native land. They take off after 2-4 months and go into vine mode so you'll need to do some trimming.

Germination.

HBWR has a very tough seed coat and nicking aids in germination alot. This is how I nick them.
Take very sharp scissors and make a shallow snip away from the germ eye, just piercing the seed coat.
Alterinateivly you can take a file a file away a bit, again away from the germ eye. Some people
recomend pouring boiling water over the freshly nicked seeds, and to let them sit over night, I have
found this is not nessecery. Plant in free draining soil ( HBWR is somewhat susceptible to rot)
In any event if the seeds are good germination should occur in less than a week.

Lighting.

HBWR does not like a lot of light when it is young. I put my seedlings in direct light every day until they show some signs of wilting, then take them out. This way the seedlings are getting the maximum amount of sunlight they can handle and soon adapt to it and pump out as much growth as possible. Alternitively you can start them off outside in pots in full sun. This way they will adapt to lots of light very quickly, again take them out of the sun when they show signs of wilting.

Water.

Keep soil moist but not wet. As I mentioned they seem to be somewhat vulnerable to rot when they are young. Still make sure to water regularly. If they remain dry to long they will start to wilt and appear to have gotten too much sun. I have lost many plants thinking they where simply getting too much light when all it was was low moisture.

Once well established.

HBWR, unlike its close relative Morning Glory, is a very slow grower, and can take up to two years to even reach a foot tall.
I feed mine regularly with Peters 20,20,20, which it seems to respond well to. I`m sure any fetalizer will do. Also I recomend worm castings when younger (big fisherman and always have a bunch laying around:)). Whatever you use just make sure to start off with half the recomended strength.

Flowering and seeds.

Let me start off by saying....Good luck with that if you dont live in a troical climate. I got alot of flowers one year which eventually led to a couple seed pods. I hear the most important factor in getting them to flower (which I believe is true about any plant) is enough space for the roots. HBWR gets potbound very easily after its first year or so of growth...you think shes barely growing but it seems to focus its energy on growing roots. As I said I keep mine in a 20 gallon pot and its still potbound until I move it outside for the season. I cant think of any practacal container that could be used to give its massive root system space, a 55 gallon oil drum perhaps.

I hope you can find this of some use. And if you have any questions at all dont hesitate to PM me. Happy growing!!!!

Old thread thought i would throw in my idea.

Since the seeds are very hard similar to a seed like the Lotus and very hard to nick
I have done this with Lotus seed but not HBWR
Is it not possible to pre soak the seed for a day until soft provider an easier seed to clip?

Mine went crazy and grew inches a day and feet a week.  It became too big to deal with. I kept it indoors over the first winter and during the second summer it grew slowly. After that I had to give up on it since I figured I would never get such a big plant to seed.

Why would the size of the plant prevent it from making seeds?  I've seen them growing wild (and very large) in different places and they produce seeds.

It had 4 four foot tendrils on it and had to be dragged into the house for the winter to survive. It just became too big to deal with as a house plant.

I germed and planted 20 seeds, and have not seen a sprout yet. Might have to try again,

I only planted one or two and got a good strong sprout.  Give it another try

The first time I tried, I got 100% germination. A couple months later, when I tried again, I got 0% and still every time I try have 0% germ rate. How fast are the seed's viability supposed to decline?

'Then', said the cat, 'it doesn't matter.'
