Problem with annona seedlings
« on: February 26, 2021, 03:38:08 AM »
Hello enthusiasts and specialists!
I've got a problem with Annonas. Like you can see on the picture, after sprouting they get dark color and start to die. By that way I lost many Annonas squamosa, muricata, spinescens and macroprophyllata.. Can I still save these?
Thank you very much in advance.
Hope to get some advices

The soil is too moist. The incubator should be ventilated frequently, high humidity and sultry heat, it will be like this

I do multiple seedlings in a larger "Community" pot for germination, then transplant to larger individual pots. One reason is I usually get seeds from a fruit so have a good amoount at one time. Using a larger pot I think gives you more control over moisture. Seedling need far less water than you think, they have little leaf surface to lose water. Pulling them apart may seem brutal but if you wait till about 15cm they usualy don't stress much.

That's probably the best way, thank you very much ☺

For future seedings you can also try a well draining mix to help with the soil being too wet. I like to incorporate cactus mix into my soil mixture to help but I have also used just straight cactus mix and the cherimoya and sugar apple seeds have sprouted just fine.
