Nannorrhops

Post by Clive60 » Thu Jan 02, 2014 9:37 pm

Can anyone pass on advice for germinating Nanorrhops ritchiana, bag or pot method. I know I might have a very long wait. I have a small 6x6" reptile heat mat, would that do for the heat they require?

I had some start germinating in damp vermiculite in a sealed bag, after a month or two with some bottom heat from a fluorescent light fixture. If I remember correctly, they put down some very deep roots so will need deep pots. :D Good luck.

thanks, as I have 6 seeds, I'll do four in a vermiculite bag and two in small pots just to experiment. icon_thumleft

The bag method worked for me too. I gave away the one plant I kept last year. Still a small plant after 10 years :shock:

If they germinate, I'll probably be in a care home by the time any of them make a decent plant. :lol:

From my experience, Callum would be in a care home by the time they'd be a decent size :wink:

I think the boot is on the other foot with this. Even the best care home for a Nanny will probably be not enough for its survival, so difficult are they :shock:

Perhaps I should sow some Phoenix Dactilifera, at least I could watch them grow! :lol:

So Nannorrhops ritchiana is not that hardy in the UK or is it they need warmer summers to grow well?

Mine didn't do too well when left out for a couple of summers and it was only just forming palmate leaves after 10 years from seed. I'm sure it wouldn't have come through a northern winter without heavy protection.
