Easy Lazy Seedlings - How to grow plants from seed
Easy and lazy way with the most successful rate so far for me to grow plants from seeds is to use these.
1 dried moss. The picture is my favourite one.
3 early picked seeds (just my memo : Seeds have more successful rate to shoot faster if they are planted after picked from its parent plants.)
Cut the dried moss small so roots can grab it after they grow from seed and when they grow, if the dried moss is not small enough, the roots will get tangled in the moss and it is hard to take off the moss of the roots.
Put water and rub it.
After it's watered well put the seeds. (chestnuts)
That's all. Easy and Lazy.
you should zip the bag to keep inside moistlized all the time but if it looks too much moistlized you can keep it open.
How long for the seed to shoot the roots depends on the seeds and when/how it's picked/stored (dried or fresh etc.,)
below are my seedlings
Seeds from Umemodoki (The smaller ones in the middle. Japanese winterberry). The bigger looking seeds in the same bag is cherry that haven't been shooting for longer than 4 months I guess
↓ My Umemodoki Japanese winterberry kokedama
I picked the seeds from this and 2 weeks later they started to shoot like the above.
↓Some kind of maple??? I don't know the name of the tree. I picked the leafy looking pod at a park and there were bunch of seeds inside so I planted them and two weeks later they shooted.
Seedling is not hard and you can try your favourite ones.
This is just my way to be easy and lazy to grow seeds.
Hope it helped and laters.
