Growing Liriope From Seeds

rkapolkaNovember 4, 2007

Does anyone have any experience growing Liriope from Seeds? I have a several hundred berries I've collected and I've heard they are next to impossible to grow from seed. Any help would be appreciated.

Remove pulp then Soak seed in water for 24 hours the store at 40F for 4 weeks then>>>>> do not cover seed as 9 hours of light is needed for germination + soil temp 60-70F & takes 28-35 days to germinate

Thanks for your response to my question about Liriope seeds.
Is there an easy way to remove the pulp?
After I posted my question I did find a research study that did talk about the warm stratification of the seeds. I've never heard of that before but I'm also a newbie.
Is it worth the effort to grow from seeds or should I just be trying to increase my plants by division?
Any other helpful hints would be appreciated.
