But the package says to place them in a polybag
You are talking about stratification or a chilling period to help certain seeds break dormancy.And should the moss be wet in the bag thats going into the fridge for 60 days?
realize that you are not planting them Just storing them moist for the stated period. Some use sand, some perlite, the medium is not really the point. You can even use damp paper towel folded and stored in a zip-lock type baggie.I have started the 24 hours soaking of seeds, they have until 10:00 pm tonight before they must be planted or whatever.
Not really sure how you could drain water from seeds even if you wanted to, but no it means to remove the seeds from the soaking water. When you store them, the medium should be barely moist, no excess water as the seeds will rot. All you are trying to do is to maintain what moisture that is already present in the seeds to begin with.The package also says to "drain water from the seeds", my guess is the water they're soaking in, not water inside the seed right?
I guess that I misinterpreted this statement, I forgot you were going with a multi-pronged approach.I have started the 24 hours soaking of seeds, they have until 10:00 pm tonight before they must be planted or whatever.
Sounds good, you will not have to do much over this period just check on them periodically. If they are a bit dry give them a spritz with a spray bottle. If they are too damp you may begin to see mold. Let us know it that happens.I can use spagnum moss, just keep it "misted" with water. Not much, just enough to maintain dampness.
Yeah? wow! that sucks. I called Ronnie Baum (get that, he's into bonsai and his last name means "tree" in german!) the gentleman in charge there, he said they're doing a class on pheonix grafting tonight. Which is very cool for me since I was thinking of starting one of those projects soon. Maybe we could start something like that here on the forums. Different methods n' stuff, like how-to classes with pics, vids and stuff. Have a bunch or something. I don't know, just a thought.Gnome wrote:Matt,
