Dendrocalamus Strictus - Seeds and Germination
These seeds have a variable rathe of germination, between 20 to 60%.
These seeds don't have a hard skin, so they don't need any previous treatment.
But putting them in warm wather for two days may improve their ability for grown.
The ideal substrate is a mixture of sand and black peat in equal parts.
Mix and water it well. Drain the mixture, pressing to expel all the water.
The soil has to be wet but no waterlogged.
Fill with the soil the container chosen to sow the seeds
Put the seeds on the substrate, leaving two cm between them.
Cover with a very thin layer of soil.
Spray them with warm water.
The seeds may take 1-2 months to germinate under perfect conditions.
For all that time we have to keep constant moisture and temperature.
In order to improve germination, the temperature should be between 30ºC on the day and 18ºC on the night.
