1. Mix sand and goji seeds together. Place in airtight bag and stratify cold moist for 15 days (mixed with sterile sand or vermiculite).
2. After the prepteartment, soak for a few hours.
3. Sow on the surface. Cover with clear plastic or grass. Keep moist and in very warm (+25-28C) temperature for germination.
4. An alkaline soil of pH 8.2 to 8.6 is the natural habitat of wolfberry.
5. Germinated berries should be planted about half an inch down in the starter pots, a lot deeper for the larger ones. An actual seed of wolfberry is smaller than that of tomato. In our experience, it will take 10-14 days for them to start coming up. The first green shoots will be tiny leaves that you have to look after them carefully. There is no doubt that once the plant sprouts, it will live. However, they grow slowly during the first few months.
The time seedlings have outgrown their starter pots, you can put your small Goji shrubs in buckets of 5 gallon, with drain holes punched at the bottom.
