Hinoki Cypress (Chamaecyparis Obtusa) 30 seeds (#189)

A sacred tree in its native Japan, this coniferous evergreen forms a handsome broadly conical specimen with dark green scale-like leaves and flat fan-like branch tips. The foliage has white bands underneath. Leaves on young plants and some cultivars are small and needle-like. Large specimens have handsome reddish-brown bark that exfoliates in narrow strips. The small globular cones are green maturing to reddish brown. Many cultivars are available, including dwarf, prostrate, variegated, and gold-leaved selections.
Hinoki falsecypress does well in sun to partial shade and moist, well drained, acid soil. Use it as a garden feature, or in the rock garden, foundation planting, or mixed border. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak the seeds in a bowl of cool water overnight. Lay the seeds on a flat surface to dry for several hours.
2. Stratify seeds in a plastic bag full of moist sand inside the refrigerator for 60 days. Keep the sand barely moist during the cold stratification period.
3. Sow the seeds the following spring once outdoor temperatures rise above +18C (65F) during the day and +8C (48F) at night. Or sow indoors in the propagator or pots
4. Prepare a pot for each seed. Fill with clean soil. Sow one seed in each pot at a depth of 3 mm (1/8").
5. Water the seeds to a depth of ~8-10 cm (~3") after planting them. Maintain moisture at this depth during the germination process.
6. Place the pots outdoors in a sheltered spot where they will be exposed to direct sun in the morning and afternoon. Protect the seeds from direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day since the soil will warm too quickly and dry out. (info source: eHow.com)
