-35% Weeping Kashmir Cypress (Cupressus Himalaica Cashmiriana) 20 seeds (#244)

Also called Himalayan cypress, this fast-growing evergreen tree is native to Bhutan, Tibet, Nepal and adjoining parts of central Asia's high elevations. It boasts among the most beautiful foliage of all conifers. Its bronzy red-brown bark contrasts the blue-green needles beautifully as well. The tree matures into a rather tall, narrow pyramid.
Tiny scale-like needles weep downward from this tree's branches. Crush the needles to release a delicious aroma. Although the branches tend to grow upward, the long, pendulous and flattened branchlet sprays give the plant a softer habit. Small reddish brown cones are produced annually.
Grow the Kashmir cypress in a sunny to lightly shaded exposure. Full sun ensures the fullest tree growth and uniformity. Any average to well-drained soil suffices. Although tolerant of drought, this cypress species prospers when given regular water, especially in summertime. Kashmir cypress also tends to falter in oppressive heat and in locations with strong winds. Use this tree as a specimen on the sunny edges of a protective grove. Dark evergreen trees in the background helps to set off the Kashmir cypress' form and foliage. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Set the cypress seeds into a bowl of water to soak for approximately 24 hours.
2. Put approximately 1 cup of peat moss into a zip-top bag. Pour in 2 to 3 tsp. of water into the bag, then add the cypress tree seeds to the contents of the bag. Squeeze out any excess air from the bag as you seal it closed.
3. Put the bag containing the seeds into a cold location. The temperature needs to be between +1-+4C (35-40F). Leave the bag in the cold location for 30 days. Check on the contents of the bag every 3 to 4 days to make sure the peat moss remains moist, but not sodden wet. Spritz the peat moss with water as needed.
4. Remove the bag from their cold storage location. Put seed-starting compost into 10 cm (4") pots. Tamp down the soil well. Pour water into each of the pots until the soil is visibly well dampened.
5. Plant two to three cypress seeds per 10 cm (4") pot. Press them into the soil to a depth of between 3 mm (1/8") using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle a 3 mm (1/8") layer of seed-starting compost over the seeds.
6. Set the 10 cm (4") pots into a watering tray, or similar container. Set the tray in a warm, brightly lit area. Try to provide a temperature between +18-+22C (65-70F). Keep the tray away from direct sunlight, but try and provide about 6 to 8 hours of light daily. The soil in the pots needs to be kept on the moist side; add water to the tray as needed. Germination of seeds can take as long as 1 to 2 months.
