Did you get these from Thailand? It sounds to me like they may not make it. A month is too long.

Many things can affect the germination process. It is possible that the seeds were not viable (for whatever reason), but also temperature and moisture conditions can affect germination, as I am sure you know.
It might be good to bring this to the attention of the seller and see what they say.

I usually germinate mine using the baggy method, then I plant them in seed germinating soils until they gets a little bit bigger. I tried many seeds before I finally figured out how to get them to germinate. They are very tricky.

I just planted some from a pod off my Celadine but I wasn't sure if they were viable after being thru the freak freezes this winte. I planted a 72 cell tray and about 10 germinated so far which is fine with me.

That is very good! You should get some nice seedlings from Celadine.

Thanks
I have no idea what pollinated it or with what. I don't know if it's self fertile. I have some seedlings from a pod off it last year that are probably 12-18 in tall so perhaps next years I'll see what comes out.

Like with people, it will have some of the traits of each parent..... and that is why seedlings are exciting: they will give you new varieties!

Hi all, its great to meet some others who are interested in growing plumerias from seed.
... I am an addict. Big Grin

It is mid-winter here in New Zealand at the moment but that doesn't slow me down as I grow them all year round, indoors.

re the question above, most of my seeds start to sprout from 3 days onwards, till about 3 weeks. But only recently I had some sprout after a whole month, was Very surprised as this is most unusual. I suspect these were a little old but may have let them dry out a little too much.

Those Celadine seedlings sound very exciting, and from your own tree. Hurray! do keep us posted.

Here is a picture of a seedling a fellow plumeria enthusiast grew from seeds he got from me three years ago. It is an excellent first bloom and I'm excited about it. He shared a piece of the tree with me so it will now be growing in two locations!Thumb of 2010-08-13/Dutchlady1/16c2ff

Beautiful color. I have a few Thai seedlings that I'm hoping to see bloom in the next year or so.

I noticed the other day that my Celedine-looking plummie has a new pod on it. I don't pollinate it and I don't have any others blooming in the area so something is pollinating it from somewhere else or it is self fertile with some critter help.

When these seedlings grow up a bit, I will place them with other people too to see what they grown into.

Hi Bumble I have just noticed this post and we do not actually sell a seed called Dageng? If you can let me know which seeds they actually are I will get some replacemants off to you. We have found the best way in the UK is a mix of 50/50 cactus compost and perlite and then to keep them at a constant 70 degrees. Every batch of seed we sell we test and if we dont get at least 70% we dont sell them. As Hetty says some seeds are just not viable but if you let me know I will get some replacements off to you.
