Help with growing edelweiss on the Gold Coast

Postby australia » Tue Mar 12, 2013 5:47 pm

Hi guys and girls,

I need some advice re growing edilweiss seedlings on the Gold Coast,

I have some growing as you can see,

Should I keep the clear lid On/Off in my seedling tray?
Also should they be in my mini green house?

They currently have morning sun ,

Look forward to your suggestions

I would be inclined to leave the lid off.

Because they are native to high alpine regions, I suspect you have chosen a plant that will be near impossible to grow at the Gold Coast.

Never say never.

On another forum we once had a post from a lady in England. She had successfully germinated and grown a Sturts Desert Pea, but wanted tips on getting it to flower.
