H Angelo,

you could try taking them inside where it is warmer. A more stable warmth
should do the trick. Of course, some seeds just refuse to shoot!

Best wishes,

Subject: [pbs] Germinating Crinum

Hi all,

I have got some Crinum procerum splendens (the red leaves asiaticum type or
whatever it is called !) more then a month ago. Some seeds germinated in a
matter of days, as all Crinum usually do, but there are still some doing
nothing. As I have them just in a shadehouse at natural heat ( I mean a
greenhouse which roof is a shadecloth at 90% ) I wonder if they need a bit
of heating to germinate.
I have always germinate Crinum seeds without difficult, but I have usually
got the seeds in summer, so heat was enough. Now temps are cooling down at
night (abt 8-10°C or 45-48F).
Any suggestion is appreciated.

many thanks
