rambutan... soak seed in water for 8 hours... lightly cover the seed soil temp 64-75F & takes 21-42 days to germinate. curry lightly cover with soil temp 65-75F ... keep soil DAMP since slow to germinate

RE: rambutan and curry

If you keep the soil to DAMP it will rot them, we grow rambutan from seed all the time. Use a mixture of potting soil, peat and sand, Tropical seeds require good drainage. Also they need a higher temp then 64-75F, we keep ours at 82-85 with almost a 100% success rate. We keep them in a pot with plastic cover for a greenhouse affect since they love humidity.
We have a free ebook on growing Tropical plants if you want to read it
