Growing Large bloom Clematis from Seeds孵大花鐵線蓮種子
It takes a long time to grow but they are so beautiful, definitely worth the effort…
Clematis mutation of this seedling with variegated foliage — you can see the white streak in the center of the leaf. 這株鐵線蓮的小實生苗變異成斑葉,可見葉片中央有白色紋路.
This is how I grow these, method A:
1.Remove the shell from dried seeds.
2.Keep them in a small re-sealable bag with clean water and place the bag somewhere dark and warm.
3.Wait several months for these seeds to sprout. Be patient.
4.Pick those sprouted seeds carefully and plant them individually in soil. Place seedlings in partial shade area until the plants start to climb.
5.Transplant those climbing young plants to the ground with climbing support.
1.Get a large re-sealable bag, fill 1/4 to 1/5 of clean soil, mist the soil but when you squeeze the soil, no water come out. 2.Get a small to medium live earth worm in the bag. Add the seeds (remove the shell of each seed), seal the bag. 3.Place the bag in room temperature or slightly warmer than that. Light requirement is toward to full shade. 4.Open the bag for fresh air and check the progress once a week. 5.Pick out the germinated seeds and plant them in small pot in moist and airy medium. Low light. 6.Move seedlings to partial shade when plants have 6-8 leaves. 7.Move the seedlings to partial shade location once is long enough/climbing. Plant the seedlings in the ground or use deeper pot planting each plant individually. Plant young plants in partial shade or full sun location right under the structure.
1.取一大夾鏈袋裝乾淨的培養土. 土量為袋子的1/4到1/5的高度. 噴濕帶中土壤到手用力擠不會出水但濕潤的程度.
If you grow enough seeds and you are lucky, you might hit the jackpot finding the mutation(s)! Like variegated foliage, evergreen or unique flower shape/color(s)! Have fun!
