|"Smoke" contains a butenolide compound produced by certain plants when heated, it speeds up or starts the germination of seeds from many different genera.|
Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.
Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like
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.
Lomandra nana seeds will usually germinate in 45 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Soak Lomandra nana seeds in warm water for a day and a night, sow just below the surface of a sandy - peaty mix, keep at about 25°C, dark and moist (not damp)
Scarification, smoke and GA3 improve germination
