  Re: [aroid-l] Araceae seed sowing & germination

Hi Chanrit

I've only tried to grown Pycnospatha arietina, and that only once from
freshly gathered seed while I was at Kew. I found germination to be slow
(6 - 10 weeks) but the plants grew OK. I sowed then on a 1:1 soil-less
compost: coarse sand mix, just covering the seed with the same. On
germination I allowed the seedlings to continue growing until crowded before
transplanting into separate pots. They grew well (but slowly) and when I
left Kew were doing well but still had not flowered. You might ask Wilbert
(who also got some of that seed from me) if his plants have flowered.
