Japanese Wood Poppy (Glaucidium palmatum) seed leaves are showing. 日本山根葵小苗長出子葉.

Cold hardy perennial. Easy to grow.  Best growing in partial shade to full shade location in moist soil.  Mauve/pink or white flowers look like poppy in mid spring to early summer.  USDA Zones:5-9.  Mature size:1.5′-2′(H) X 1′-1.5′(W).  Propagate by seeds.  Excellent for woodland garden!

*Seeds germination: With some soil/medium keep seeds moist but not too wet in fridge, can be in resealable bag or container for at least 1 month then bring it out in room temperature in partial shade or light shade warm location, seeds will start to germinate.  Total germination is about 40 days.  Seeds do not stay viable long so they are not able to keep in storage.   Fresh seeds sow as soon as possible otherwise seeds will be hard to germinate because seeds might go into further dormancy and lost viability.

耐寒強健的多年生草花.  容易栽種. 最好栽種在半日照到全蔭處.  淡紫色/粉紅色或白色花好似罌粟花形,於仲春到初夏間盛開.  喜冷也頗耐熱.  成熟株高1.5-2呎,寬幅1-1.5呎.  主以種子來繁殖.  很適合林地型花園!

*種子需播在小苗盆上/或夾鏈袋裝,置於暗處+冷涼處的冰箱冰1個月後取出室溫下半日照到散光處等種子孵出. 約40天孵出.    種子活性短無法保存且種子的冬眠期長.

Use baggie method: clean the seeds first, use new clean bag to bag the seeds, add few drops of clean water, seal the bag and place this bag in warm location, about 1 week, you will see some seeds start the signs of germination. 洗淨種子後用乾淨的新夾鍊袋裝起後加入兩三滴清水,封好後放置於溫暖處. 約一週就可見有些種子開始有孵出的跡象. — sign of Mangosteen seed root growing. 山竹種子的小白腿伸展中.

Mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana) seed germination. 山竹種子孵出.

Tropical evergreen fruit tree.  The fruit is so delicious!  Remove the thick purple shell and then eat the sweet, tender, juicy, sweet and full of flavor inner garlic clove look flesh.   Very nice when the fruit is chilled in hot summer!   Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist soil.  Mature plant size:15′-30′(H) X 20′-30′(W).  USDA Zones:11+.  Propagate by seeds.

熱帶常綠果樹.  這個水果非常好吃!  切開厚厚的紫色外皮後裡面是如蒜瓣形狀的柔軟果肉,甜嫩香甜又多汁.  夏天冰鎮後吃起來更棒!  容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處的濕潤土壤中.  成熟株高15-30呎高,20-30呎寬幅.  喜熱怕冷.  以種子來繁殖.

Use baggie method: clean the seeds first, use new clean bag to bag the seeds, add few drops of clean water, seal the bag and place this bag in warm location, about 1 week, you will see some seeds start the signs of germination.

洗淨種子後用乾淨的新夾鍊袋裝起後加入兩三滴清水,封好後放置於溫暖處. 約一週就可見有些種子開始有孵出的跡象.

Let these seeds grow to shoot appear then take them out for planting.

要等到小白腿伸展後出芽時才取出種植.

Plant them in medium pot individually.  Use clean, moist organic soil, slightly cover the sprouted seed, do not add more water.   Cover the whole pot with clear plastic bag, tie the bag opening then place somewhere warm and dapple shade location.  Open the bag to get fresh air once a day.  This way will keep bugs off, avoid strong wind and temperature dropping too fast.   When the shoot growing strong, leave the bag open for more air flow, but if seedlings do not react well, tie the bag again — keep an eye on these seedlings!

發芽的種子要個別種一中型盆.  盆土使用乾淨有濕氣的有機土,略覆土,如此濕氣足夠勿須澆水.   取乾淨透明塑膠袋將整盆放入後紮起開口處,然後放到溫暖散光處靜置等芽葉伸展.  袋子收口是為防蟲侵害小苗,也防風及溫度突降.  每天要開袋透風一次並觀察小苗生長的進度. 等小苗生長勢加快了,慢慢試著打開袋口,增加空氣流通也讓小苗適應外界的溫濕度及光線.  若小苗適應有點困難,加長封袋時間,總之以漸進式使小苗適應盆植的溫濕度後再適應無袋保護的狀態–適應期間最好常常檢查小苗狀況!

When the seedlings are growing well without bag covering, move them to partial shade first rather than full sun location.   Then eventually grow them in the full sun location.  Do not let seedlings dry out neither over water.

小苗長勢不錯的話可以去掉保護袋後先轉半日照不要一下子全日照.  當然其最後階段是使它們適應全日照.  水份控管很重要,不可乾掉也不可太濕.

Best growing outdoor in the ground in full sun location, otherwise can be planted in big pot to control growth.

以全日照地植為佳,否則以大盆來盆植藉以方便控制植株大小與冬天的溫濕度的掌控.

Slow growth.  In order to speed up the maturity, you can try self grafting method.  It will age the plant in shorter period of time.

生長速慢.  要提早結果的話可以嚐試植株的自體嫁接以達到快速老化成熟.
