How To Plant Water Hyacinth Seeds?
Water hyacinth seeds are easy to grow from seed. You need only to buy the right kind of soil and water them once they have grown into their full size. The best time to sow these seeds is when it’s still cool outside, but warm enough so that your house doesn’t freeze over during wintertime.
You will need to prepare the soil first. Mix one part peat moss with three parts perlite.
Add a little bit of potting mix to make sure there isn’t too much air space between the two layers of soil. Then add another layer of peat moss and then a third layer of perlite. Finally, add some compost or manure if you want to increase your chances of getting beneficial bacteria in your plants’ roots. Make sure not to use any fertilizer at all!
Sow the seeds in the mixture until they’re about half way up the sides of your pots. They’ll probably take a few years before they sprout fully, but don’t worry because you can speed things along by watering them every now and then.
Once they’ve grown to around five inches tall, transplant them out into individual containers (or even larger) where you can watch them grow.
Water hyacinths are beautiful plants that thrive in moist soil. With a little effort, you can have your own seeds growing in no time.
Remember to let them grow slowly and to never use fertilizer on them, or else they’ll die.
How To Plant Hyacinth Beans?
When planting hyacinth bean seeds, you should always start them inside in peat pots at least 10 weeks before the last frost. This will give the beans enough time to germinate and develop their roots.
Fill each peat pot with moist peat moss, and then plant one bean on the surface of the peat. Make sure the peat is damp but not soaking wet as this could cause the peat pot to disintegrate around the bean and drown it.
Place the peat pots in a warm location that receives plenty of sunlight.
Once the peat pot has started to dry out, it is time to transplant your bean into a regular pot. Fill a 3-inch or larger pot with a moist soilless mixture.
Make a hole with your finger and place the peat pot containing the bean inside the hole. Press the soilless mixture firmly around the peat pot to secure the bean in place. Water thoroughly and place in a warm sunny location.
