Sprouting time?

bmx88dMay 24, 2006

Just curious if anyone knows the approx. range of jack pine seed germination. Ive seen Online bonsai journals from 13 days to 3 weeks. I'm curious because i have planted 40 seeds and only 1 has sprouted. It sprouted the 15th day after planting, its now the 3 week eve, and none others have sprouted. Am i screwed? or am i just impatient? how much longer should i wait?

Also, what are some good ways to help ready my trees for the upcoming winter? (aside from keeping them outside)

Did you cold stratify the seeds prior to planting? For how long? What are they planted in?

Yes, for a 7 days, and they are in those peat pellets

Seven weeks would be more like it - 7 days isn't nearly long enough.

jack pines dont require cold stratification, or atleast thats what ' read. in any case, i have one sprouted so i mean, my stratification was sufficient
