Germinating Ilama seeds
« on: September 26, 2016, 01:21:39 PM »

 I have some Ilama seeds that I started soaking in warm water last night. The plan was to soak them for 24 hours and then sow them in small pots using bottom heat. Now I'm wondering if it might be better to put the soaked seeds in a moist paper towel / zip lock bag  and place them on the heat pad checking them every few days ?  What are your thoughts on this ?

I think there are few threads on this already if you try the google search:)

Ilama seeds can take a really long time and with paper towel you would have to keep on replacing it. I have had great success with cocopeat in a ziplock but I can also imagine that germinating in the pot it will stay in would be benificial.

I have also found with many seeds that roots get stuck in the paper and it is hard to remove without damage.
