Does anyone have any experience germinating New Jersey Tea Tree? I've had some in potting mix for about a month and a half and another pile in a moist paper towel for a little less. I have still to see any action.
I've read this tree can be long/difficult to germinate. Anyone else get these guys poppin?
Have you heard of Winter Sowing? I now use this method for sprouting all of my seeds. Basically putting soil and water in a milk jug or soda bottle. Make drain holes and very tiny holes at the top. put seeds in, tape container back together and do not open until seeds are up.
No watering in between, no opening container. Depending on the seed I have had them come up in a matter of days...........or surprise me with a seedling 2 or 3 months later.
Thanks for replying! Is this much different than just using a celled tray of pots with a clear plastic cover? It sounds like moisture containment, a little drainage, and a little air flow. Am I missing something? I'd love to learn more
