Cyclamen Bioag Ful-Power experiment
« on: September 29, 2022, 12:04:04 AM »
Soaked cyclamen purpurascens and coum seeds for 30hrs in 2 cups water with 1 teaspoon mixture of Ful-Power. I should have done some hederifolium seeds as well. Maybe next year I will redo this, just to see which show above ground first. I realize fresh cyclamen seed germinate easy on their own, but this is late to be starting cyclamen seeds here outside.

I made a small bed, maybe only 6 inches deep. I think the purpurascens are top and coum bottom. Seeds were planted September 21. Put down about 2 inches of compost on top of the seeds. Winters here will pop them to the surface. Usually have to put more compost down at some point during the winter to cover them back up.

Guff,

I tried to Google 'Full- Power' and was unable to find anything about it.
Please share information on where or how to access the product.

Thanks

Purchased mine from Amazon. You have to be careful with items on Amazon though. I was reading sellers reviews and I guess some sell fake stuff. Make sure it's free shipping and or ships from Amazon for free($25.00 purchase and over to get free ship) I bought mine from Amazon seller OMEGA STAR, he has a good rating, There are cheaper prices also, but I like I said some reviews I read it's fake stuff.

Amazon seller OMEGA STAR.

Mine came in a different type of bottle then in the Amazon ad, but think mines legit. Cap has a plastic ring seal attached to cap that breaks off when you first open. Plus seller has a good rating.

Decided to start a bin to grow under lights through the winter. Used a nickle apart for hederifolium(90 seeds) and a quarter apart for purpurascens alba(36 seeds). These will be misted with water for two weeks, twice a day. They will be covered with screened leaf compost/sand mix when I see some growth starting.







Collect seed from a red hederifolium.

Most of the Hederifolium seeds have germinated, the purpurascens alba haven't yet...
Covered the Hederifolium seeds up with leaf compost/sand mix.

Starting to form the tuber.

Hederifolium seedlings are starting to pop up. Still no germination with the Purpurascens alba, I did cover them up with leaf compost/sand mix.

Some silver leaf Hederifolium seeds may have been mixed in with the red/purple seeds. Usually the dark purple from what I recall all had darker leaf centers. Could be a cross, or I had grabbed a pod from another plant.  When planting out all my dark purple plants, I had mixed them in with pinks and whites, hoping they would cross and make different shades and leaf patterns.



One of my better original dark purple plants, may or maynot have this plant anymore.....

Yan, thanks. That was in 2011. Kinda forgot about it, was over grown with self sown Hellebore seedlings. Last Summer I cleaned up alot of the seedlings that were growing in the bed.

Making some progress, around 20 Hederifolium seedlings are above soil, still no sign of the Purpurascens alba.

Making some progress, one seedling is starting to put up it's fifth leaf. Put down perlite, was having problems with green junk growing.

Have around 50 seedlings of the Dark Purple/Red Hederifolium , none for Purpurascens alba. Every week a few more of the Hederifolium show above the perlite. Biggest seedling is putting up it's seventh leaf.

Might have to remove a couple seedlings, they are getting so big. They are covering up other seedlings. No purpurascens alba seedlings so far. Seems strange, maybe the seeds didn't form right? I picked the pods when they had cracked open.
