This germination is a bit tricky.  Keeping seeds warm first then keep cool to simulate summer and fall to winter.   Fresh seeds can direct sow (will take 6-18 months), otherwise you can try my way.

1.Small pot/container as seed tray.  Fill the seed tray with top soil/potting soil, sprinkle the seeds then cover the seeds with a very thin layer of soil.  Spray with water mist. Bag the tray with clear plastic bag/re-sealable bag.  Place the bag in somewhere warm for 1 month.  Open bag to get fresh air once in a while.

2.After 1. Place the bag in the fridge.  Open bag to get fresh air once in a while.

3.Wait for the seeds germination.  Gently move the sprouted seeds to small pot, one seed in one pot.  Place these small pots in partial shade location and keep them moist.

Fresh seeds can also be germinated in room temperature in the same way.  Will take about 2.5 months to germinate.  Gently move the sprouted seeds to small pot, one seed in one pot.  Place these small pots in partial shade location and keep them moist.

Flowers petals are soft then harden and color turn pale or even to green.  Long period of time to enjoy the flowers.  It is very common seen and used during winter and spring in pots or planters.  Flowers could be single or double, many colors to choose from according to the varieties.  Plant is toxic if ingested.

這個比較囉唆…要先暖後涼催芽. 除春末夏初直播外(要6-18個月),你可以試試我的方法–

1.透水的小容器裝排水佳的土和介質,播下種子後覆淺土後噴水霧.  然後用夾鍊袋或透明塑膠袋,置於溫暖處放1個月. 最好每天開袋透氣.

2.整袋移到冰箱冷藏1個月. 一樣每天開袋透氣.

3.直到種子出芽,取出已出芽種子一顆一盆. 用排水佳的任何土都可以種. 置於半日照處保濕即可.

不先冰過的話直接置於濕潤盆土上,整盆用大夾鍊袋悶著,偶爾開袋透氣,約2.5個月發芽. 發芽後再撿出一小盆一棵於半日照通風處種到快滿盆時換盆. 小苗勿過份澆水.

花瓣開久會變革質硬化所以雖顏色會轉淡後變成綠色的. 可賞花期有數月之久. 為常見的冬天和春天用的花材. 有單瓣和重瓣花色很多.  植株有毒不可誤食.

It is very easy to collect their seed pods to get seeds if you or your family have a plant in the garden. Their growth rate is slow so in garden centres or nurseries the price is high. Besides propagation of stem cuttings, propagate them from seeds you can get more. They are spring flowering shrubs, tolerant shade and evergreen through winter. They all like slightly acidic soil.

1.soil/medium must be well drained, use shallow container to sow seeds. If possible, sterilize the soil/medium first.

2.Keep soil moist but too wet. Sow seeds on the surface of soil. Do not cover the seeds. Leave the container where is partial shade. Seeds will germinate in 10-20 days. Will grow the first set of leaves in 8-10 weeks. They are easy to grow but slow, so be patient!

酒紅杜鵑(Rhododendron catawbiense ‘Roseum Elegans’)及山月桂屬的種子種植方法:

1.土用泥炭土和木屑/碎樹皮以1比1混合為播種用土. 用淺缽為苗盆.

2.基本上種子不可覆土,分散播下,要保濕但不可太濕有積水置於半日照涼爽處約10-20天會發芽,8-10週會長出本葉.
