Germination of

Hippophae rhamnoides

Sea Buckthorn: Sandthorn, Seaberry

Hippophae rhamnoides

Tillandsia secunda seeds can be sown on the surface of a well-draining soil mix. The container should be placed in a warm location with bright, indirect light. Mist the seeds with water as needed to maintain humidity. Germination can take several weeks to a few months, and the seedlings may take several years to mature.

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.
