Smoke Disc Seed Primer - Germination Stimulant
Ideal for South African Species including Protea, Leucospermum, Leucadendron, Ericas, Restios, Strelitzias, and many other species.
Seeds of many plants are dormant and require very specific conditions for germination. This improved seed primer contains a range of natural substances which have been found to overcome dormancy and stimulate seed germination in a wide range of species. Particularly suited to plants of South African Areas that typically experience a bush fire each year, in turn beneficial for natural germination.
The degree of response varies with the species but, on average, treated seed samples give at least double the number of seedlings when compared to untreated samples.
