  Growing Anthurium from seed
From: nonamethefish at gmail.com (Joseph S.) on 2007.10.07 at 15:31:07(16421)
I received some Anthurium scandens and possibly A. gracile seeds and
would like to hear how you guys start them. According to the sender
they are very easy to germinate.

My favorite method for many seeds, including Anthurium is to place the
cleaned seed in a zip-lock type bag with barely moist long fiber sphagnum
moss. Germination can be easily observed and when the seedlings have formed
a bit of a root system, they can be moved to a more appropriate medium.

I have sown A. gracile and A. bakeri on pure coco
fiber, standard (but rather fibrous) peat, as
well as 50% peat 50% perlite. I put them in a
transparent plastic bag or I put a glass pane on
the pot so that the humidity level is 100% and
the soil remain quite moist. Temperature should
be kept (IMO) between 22 and 30?C. Light is
important too : without light the seeds do not germinate : do not bury them !

Regards and good luck,
