Celery, also known as parsley, is a very healthy variety of vegetable that is refreshing and rich in minerals and fiber content, and is often eaten to regulate blood pressure, which is especially popular. Therefore, there are many farmers who grow celery, so how long does it take to germinate celery seeds? How to germinate celery? Celery seed wholesaler will explain to you.
The low temperature for germination of celery seeds is 4 degrees Celsius and the suitable temperature is 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. Below 15 degrees Celsius, seeds take longer to germinate, above 25 degrees Celsius the germination rate decreases significantly, and above 30 degrees Celsius almost no germination occurs. Below 30 degrees Celsius, the greater the temperature difference, the higher the germination rate. The germination rate is higher with a variable temperature treatment of 6 to 8 hours around 25 degrees Celsius and 16 to 18 hours around 15 degrees Celsius. Under the right temperature conditions, germination can take place in 7 to 10 days. Also seed germination must have sufficient moisture. It needs to be moist and does not tolerate dryness. A moisture content of 70 to 80 percent is generally good. Adequate oxygen is also needed.
1. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours to make them fully absorb water. Then knead and wash the seeds several times until the water is clear. Spread the seeds on a straw mat and dry them slightly in the shade to dissipate the excess water on the surface of the seeds. After drying, the seeds are placed in a tiled pot, covered with a damp cloth, and placed in a cool, ventilated place for germination.
The appropriate temperature for germination is 15-20℃. During the germination period, the seeds are turned once a day to make the temperature and humidity uniform. Wash the seeds with water once every 2 days to prevent mold. After panning to dry a little, and then continue germination. About 7 days, more than 80% of the seeds show white when you can sow.
2. Put the seeds into a cloth bag, wet with water and then hang into the water well, about 30 cm from the water surface, so that they can absorb water and swell in a low-temperature humid environment. 24 hours later, take back the seeds and put them in 15 to 20 ℃ conditions to germinate, the temperature should not be too high. Rinse with water 2 to 3 times a day, 2 to 3 days hand have 80% of the embryonic root exposed can be sown.
3. Soaked seeds, refrigerated at a low temperature of 0 ~ 1 ℃ for 3 days, and then placed in 15 ~ 20 ℃ conditions germination, can shorten the germination time and improve the neatness of germination. Soaking seeds with 100ppm of gibberellin or 1% thiourea can be used instead of low temperature treatment to obtain the same effect.
