I have done it - germinated Welwitchia mirabilis in hydroton. I have tried various ways, and could not get it done. I have now put some more seed in the hydroton and I am trying to replicate this.
Welwitchia in hydroton
Beautiful Flower..And a big Congratulations on your successful germination of seeds in hydroton.
Thanks - now to get him to 1 year!
How do you keep the seeds from falling down too far into the hydroton? Otherwise is seems a good medium to get things started.
The Welwitchia seeds are winged and pretty big so it is not a real issue.
Wow....that is awesome! Please post a pic of the whole container with the seedling.
Will do - once I can get it bigger so that I do not need macro's, otherwise it is just a pot! LOL It is similar to the ones sally uses.
