I recently received some anthurium vittarifolium seeds. Following the advice found on this wonderful sit. I was able to sprout the seeds. It's so amazing to see a seed sprout and grow 😁.

I used an old rasberry container filled with damp moss. Placed the seeds on top of the moss with a very small amount over the seeds. They sprouted roots in about 4 days with leaves following about 12 days later.

I have been keeping the moss damp with the lid closed.

I am looking forward to the seed growing in to nice size plants in a few years.

I had them popping up everywhere. I ran out of little propagation pots so started just stuffing them into the moss of existing large baskets LOL

This was definitely a great bunch of seeds. The germination rate was very good. Had three more pop up yesterday. That makes 11 out of 14 Hurray!

I get almost 100% germination on my seeds, because they are fresh right off the spathe. Some people who sell them clean them (remove the seed from the jelly filled berry) before sending them and that can lead to a very low germination rate. An intact seed still plump and moist has an extremely high chance of germinating. Don't buy tropical seeds that are not completely fresh they don't really have a shelf life
