Below are the instructions from the website on how to start off the cv seeds or bell reed seeds
? Can anyone help me with the instructions
I saw the plant at the Bristol University Botanical Gardens
germination instructions Cannomois virgata - bell reed:
Please use for sowing Jiffy 7 Peat Pellets, soak them in water and put in a plastic pot.
Alternatively, normal seed substrate could be used as well.
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 75-83 F, somewhat lower at night at 68-75 F. The resulting micro-climate provides ideal conditions for germination.
