Is It Too Late To Germinate Illama Seeds?
« on: October 16, 2017, 01:33:51 AM »
So, I bought some illama seeds from Raul Ruiz. I am wondering if it is too late to germinate seeds? I bought GA-3 acid to help with germination too. I am having my dad to germinate these seeds. If it's too late to germinate, can I store them over the winter? I am from Southern California.

In pots, indoor, you can sow seeds year round.

I got Ilama seeds recently from Raul and after treating them with GA3 300 ppm, all are germinating.

None of mine germinated. My dad has it in his greenhouse. And it is hot and humid like mofo in there and ain't helping.

In my experience if you soaked them in GA3 and they didnt come up in 3 weeks they
probably never will

If you don't use GA and they went dormant they should start to sprout around May, June that is what happens in the wild, so be patient..

Good news. My dad just reported that one of the illama seeds germinated. Illama really tests my patience.
