How to Germinate Helipterum Roseum
Prepare a pot or plant cells with a seed compost and stand your pot or cells in the water.
Once the soil is damp to the touch on top you know your soil is wet enough to sow.
Sprinkle the seeds finley across the compost spacing them out.
Press them into the soil do not cover with compost!
Now you need to create a humid atmosphere with clingfilm,if using a pot just pull it tight over the top .
Within a few hours you should see condensation if you dont the cling film isnt tight enough or air is getting in.
With cells you do the same thing but will need to cover the seeds and the base to create the humid enviroment.
Place in a warm sunny spot germination can take a few days to 2 weeks.
The post should self water if the cling film is tight enough if it looks dry stand your post or cells in water and let it soak from the base.
When big enough seperate the seedlings out into pots or cells they can be slowly exposed to the outside weather to harden off.
Place outside until after the last frost if in the UK or colder areas.
Start by exposing them outside for just a few hours if in a colder climate.
