  Anthurium salvinii seeds
From: "Adao Pereira" miguelporto at mail.telepac.pt> on 2000.09.01 at 14:33:58(5327)
Hello!

I've collected some A. salvinii seeds in Costa Rica and I wonder if there's
any special thing needed to germinate them. I just sowed them, removing them
from the berry. Should they dry out before being sown?

BTW, I've got three berries left. Let me know if anyone wants them.

Regards,
Miguel

Here in south Florida I simply wash the seeds and drop them on top of my
moist planting medium. Keep humid and out of bright sun. But in general if
you are allowing Anthurium seeds to dry you will have little success with
germination.
They need to go into the planting medium immediately after removal from the
fruit.

There are probably as many ways of growing as there are growers but for me
in SW Fla over the many years I have had best results using wet sphag. Simply
sow them on top in partial sun. Also I have better luck massing the seeds.
They seem to germinate more robustly. If you are in a temperate zone
naturally the coming fall season might be cause for keeping them warm however
you should have time to bring them to thumb pot size soon. good luck Joe
