Heichera seeds are sold, I tried to grow it. I like red islets in combination with woolly cleaner. In addition, it is perennial and winters well, but not for long, when the root neck is earthed for winter. In the first year, I planted the seeds in a box from a doshirak in February, covered it with foil, and then dive. This year, remembering my previous failures, I sowed them in November on peat tablets “Gilly”. Seedlings are very tolerant of a lack of light. Mold appeared on some tablets, I poured it with a solution of phytosporin. Until 3-4 real leaflets appeared, it didn’t dive, since the previously dived heicher dies or is very ill. Then she prepared peat pills again and geykhera sitting in them on a few tablets in them. The survival rate is almost 100%, even if the root system is completely exposed or damaged.
When my seedlings grew up and the roots entangled the tablets, and they (the tablets) grew together a little, I pinned them (seedlings) together with the tablets into seedling pots with soil.
For the most part, the heihara turned out to be red, but green specimens also came across.
I liked her so much that I left 2 things at home as indoor flowers. It perfectly tolerates dry air and lack of lighting. As you can see on the green - scored buds,
and this is February 27th.
