Instructions:

Dawn redwood seeds have low germination rates naturally, the best setup is a greenhouse with a heat mat or just in consistent room temperature without much temperature fluctuation, and away from direct sun.

Pre-soaking for 24 hours in water can help, as well as placing the seeds in a ziploc baggie with paper towels, vermiculite or perlite in a fridge for 2-3 weeks prior to planting can benefit the germination rates.

Once the seeds germinate, start removing the humidity dome, then make sure seedlings are getting a good amount of light, under grow lights or a bright windowsill.

Gave as a gift!

These were a gift for a friend of mine. She was thrilled when she saw them. I know they were planted but haven't received any updates on germination! I will update when I get some info. Thank you always for your quick service and your concern for customer satisfaction.
