Has anyone grown Fatsia from seed? If so, how long does it take for them to get to a reasonable size (1-2')? How long do they take to germinate?
Any other thoughts, opinions, or tips would be welcomed. :)
I have a few seeds that I've been trying to grow. Of the 20 or so, only 2 have germinated. And, that took several weeks, and several months later, still only have the first 2 leaves on them. But, they are still green, so that, in my opinion, means they are not dead. I still have hope.
I have had luch by NOT covering the seed (light seems to be required) Temp 85 day 68 night. took 15-90 days to germinate. I have also tried soaking the seed overnight in flat 7-up It may sound crazy but it has worked for me.... It works on this plant & with Crown-Vetch
if you have fresh seeds, i have found they usually germinate in 7-14 days. this past year, mine grew more slowly, but they seem to love water and grow faster if they are kept in humid moist conditions........
I think I'll have to try them, then!
Thank you for all of your input.
