Germination guide for Cardiospermum halicacabum

These notes are a general guide, it is recommended to check specialist literature for some of the more unusual seeds in our lists.
Seed Germination Theory and Practice by Professor Norman C. Deno
Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds. Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like Welwitschia mirabilis require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.

Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet, the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Some seeds need to be in the light (surface sown) or in the dark (sown deep enough to receive little or no light) to germinate. A rule of thumb is to cover the seeds their own width deep in the growing medium, but some seeds prefer to be sown much deeper, and some fairly large seeds like to be surface sown (or higher).
Many seeds germinate best at certain temperatures, some will germinate at a comparatively wide range of temperatures, yet others need fluctuating temperatures.
Almost all seeds are waiting in a dormant state for some outside stimulus to break their dormancy, some just need sufficiently high ambiant humidity, others need scarification, vernalization or to be passed through the intestines of an animal.

Cardiospermum halicacabum seeds will usually germinate in 20 to 40 days, if conditions are favourable.
Normally germinates in the dark. Sow Cardiospermum halicacabum seeds about 15mm deep in a rich, light, well drained, neutral ph seed sowing mix at about 35°C.

Cardiospermum halicacabum seeds have a hard seed coat that is impermeable to water, and which prevents the seed from imbibing.

Scarification: Large seeds can be chipped with a chizel, knife or rasp. Smaller seeds may be scraped on sandpaper, clipped with nail clippers or pricked with a needle. Try to do this on the side away from the hilum. After scarification seeds are usually soaked in warm water, which should be changed daily. Most seeds swell up when they are soaked, those that do should be sown immediately.

Scarification, soaking, GA3, sulphuric acid or hot water treatment can help to break dormancy.
