Growing Instructions for the Southern Grass Tree

 

Grass tree seeds germinate readily from seed with no special pre-treatment. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. 1. Plant the seeds in a porous, seed starter mix or a mix of potting soil and sand or vermiculite. 2. Put the soil in a pot. 3. Sow the seeds 1-2 mm deep. Do not bury the seeds deeply. 4. Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed. 5. Place in a warm shaded or semi shaded position to avoid dying out. Keep warm & moist, avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix. Germination generally occurs in around 10-28 days in the right condition.
