Monotropa Uniflora

Monotropa Uniflora: Germination is unique for this mycoheterotrophic plant. It relies on a symbiotic relationship with specific fungi in the soil for growth. Mimicking its natural habitat conditions might be necessary, although detailed germination instructions might not be widely available.

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.
