|They are dageng seeds and have been in a month in a propagater.|

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

|The seeds i brought which have not taken where brought from plumeria2u.So not very happy|

|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.

|Ok thank you i will contact them 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.|

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.
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. 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!|

|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.|
