This listing is for 200 seeds from the Pipsissewa plant, Chimaphila umbellata. Pipsissewa is an evergreen ground cover that has very striking flowers in early summer. The plants prefer dappled to full shade, and they grow best in soil that ranges from neutral to acidic, they just love to grow around pine trees. The seeds are very tiny and orchid-like and have the same basic germination requirements as do orchid seeds.
Planting Instructions - Spread the seeds on the surface of a humus-rich sterilized soil and cover with natural mulch to retain moisture. The seeds should be planted in an area that receives plenty of sunlight each day, a half day to a full day of sunlight will be needed. The seeds can be germinated using the flask method, information on how to use this method is easily found on the internet. The most important requirement for the germination of orchid-like seeds is the sterility of the growing medium. The seeds are very tiny and will be consumed by the organisms which are found in non-sterilized soil.
