How do I germinate an Araucaria columnaris seed? And when do I know it is ready to germinate?



Not much on the web about this, but the link below does give information

Hi, welcome to GoY, you don't say where you are in the world, but for the U K, the advice would be to sow the seed as soon as it's ripe in a seedbed where the temperature doesn't fall below 41f, if the seeds are bought sow them now, if they're seeds from your own tree make sure they're from a female cone, these will be about 6" long and ellipsoid, if they're male cones they will be about 1 -2 1/2" long and conical, these are frost tender trees and require a minimum winter temperature of 41f, so I have made the assumption that you live somewhere warmer than the U K, Derek.
