|Common name||Mimosa Bracatinga|
|Germination||To obtain rapid and uniform germination, scarify the Mimosa Scabrella seeds by pouring boiling water over them and stirring gently for 3 minutes. The seeds can then be soaked in tap water for 24-48 hours to accelerate germination. Then, sow the seeds on the surface of a well drained seed sowing mix at about 22°C, under good light. The seeds will usually germinate in 21-30 days. Place the seedlings in standard potting mix at 64-75°F when they reach 15-20 cm in height. Grow them outside in full light and shade them from the hot sun. Water the plants moderately and feed them once a month with regular fertilizer. Germination can take longer. Be patient!
Direct seeding is also possible in the spring. The young seedlings should be kept in a semi-shaded location until they are well established.
|Scarification / Stratification||No|
