Germinating Protea seeds in a tropical climate

Zone Surin, Thailand | Anonymous added on May 24, 2019 | Answered

I have recently ordered and received a shipment of Protea seeds - 4 different varieties. I live in a tropical climate in rural eastern Thailand and in my study of germinating Protea seeds I read that a temperature of around 12 degrees Celsius is the recommended germinating temperature. The only way I can think of achieving a constant temperature around this range is to germinate the seeds in a glass doored shop cooling fridge. Can you tell me if this is a viable option to germinate the seeds. My aim is to expand to a commercial venture. With Thanks, Graeme.

Yes, I do believe that this could be a feasible option. Any method that you can use to get the seeds to proper germination temperatures will suffice. It will not matter how it is done, only that it is done.
