Germination of

Casuarina Cunninghamiana

Tropical Oak Bonsai Tree: Quercus myrsinifolia, Chinese evergreen oak, blunt-lobed oak

Casuarina Cunninghamiana

Casuarina cunninghamiana seeds should be soaked in water for 24 hours prior to planting to improve germination. They should then be sown in a well-draining soil mix and lightly covered with soil. The soil should be kept moist, but not waterlogged, and the seeds should be kept in a warm, bright location. Germination can take up to 6 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
