Commiphora germination

Post by MikeDom » Mon May 03, 2021 5:18 pm

The initial show after a few days followed by the soil erupting a week later. Note that the soil has dried out at this stage, and was wetted soon after.

After a further 10 days, pretty much full germination, some still coming through. Also, several examples of polyembryony in case there weren't enough plants already.

These are seeds that are more than 1 year old - fresh seed won't germinate well. And they say that Commiphora germination is difficult so you tend to pack a lot of seeds into a small space.

Active grower of caudiciform succulents and mesembs. I don't really grow cacti (very often).

That's good to see, what commiphora are they ?, you are going to need some deeper pots.
