germination instructions Thyrsostachys oliveri - Mid-size bamboo:

Pre-soak bamboo seeds for 24 hours in lukewarm water (about 86 F).

For sowing please use Jiffy 7 Peat Pellets, soak them in water and put in a plastic pot. Sow the seeds on the peat pellets and cover the seeds with a thin layer of peat (about 2 mm).

Then put the plastic pot in a ziplock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm , a ziplock bag of size 12 x 17 cm is recommended . Fill in the ziplock bag as much tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer, so that after the absorption of the substrate a few mm of water remain on the bottom. Then close the ziplock bag - Ready!

More watering is not required because no moisture evaporates through the ziplock bag .

Location: on the windowsill or in a small greenhouse in partial shade, daytime temperatures at about 80–90 F, somewhat lower at night at 77-83 F. The resulting micro-climate provides ideal conditions for germination.

The germination time for bamboo seeds, depending on the species, will be between 10 and 40 days.
