Growing Rhododendrons From Seed
Reprinted from the Shelton Chapter Newsletter

Each hobbyist who persists in growing seeds develops a procedure which, while differing in detail, observes certain basics:

1. The medium is loose, open, and reasonably sterile.

2. The medium and air space above it must be moist at all times. Hence, containers are preferably moisture impervious and must be covered with glass or clear plastic.

3. Seeds are sown on the surface and rarely even lightly covered.

4. The containers are placed in a light area that receives no direct sunlight where the temperature is preferably about 70° F.
