Are you passionate about growing plants? Do you want to grow your favorite plants? Here we give you some tips and tricks to successful sowing.
Many different plants can be raised from seeds or by sowing which consists of depositing seeds, collected from the plant or from the ground around it, in a substrate suitable for each species. If all conditions of temperature, humidity and light are favorable, the germination process will begin (from a few days to a few weeks depending on the species) and gives birth to similar plants with some genetic variations.
The success of this quick and easy method depends on several factors that will be discussed below.
Seeds sowing can be carried out at any season, especially if we create the appropriate conditions for germination; While, spring is the most favorable period for most sowings. Last summer is also a possible period for sowing hardy plants such as some trees, shrubs and biennial plants.
The success of sowing is influenced by the age of seeds. The seeds longevity differs from one species to another and can vary from a few weeks to a few years. The embryo contained in each seed feeds on the reserve materials that surround it. When these are exhausted the seed loses the ability to germinate.
Examples of seeds longevity:
Some days: Anthurium
Some weeks: Philodendron
Some years: Begonia
More than 100 years: Acacia
