Tulip poplar germination
I was walking through the forest the other day(hence my name)and came across five seed pods laying on the ground, on the sandy shores of the creek. I had no doubt they fell from the many towering liriodendron tulipifera that completly dominated this part of the forest. Some force compelled me to grow these seeds,and so i took them home. They were green, now dry and brown, and slightly smaller than the cones you would see in autumn. Are they viable? How do i germinate the cones of a tulip poplar? How do i care for this plant?Can i start them indoors? I know I have multiple questions, but any answer will be appreciated!
