    Hi everybody,

    Hi recently ordered some aquilaria crassna seeds.
    I am trying to make them grow... But it not an easy task.
    I was asking myself if someone knows somethnig about it.
    I found almost nothing online about this process.
    Thank you,

    Aleata

    You will laugh : ) ... I am living in Geneva Switzerland.
    But I have greenhouses, my sister is herbalist, so we got the stuff to try it.
    In fact I was asking myself if someone as already managed to grow aquilaria in europe.
    Thanks.

    okay i assume your sister knows how to do a pot mix for planting tropical plants

    The trick is, and people would charge you a fortune just for this advice...two seeds next to each other into the pot mix by the depth of your first finger joint...humidity, and temperature, replicate the light hours and humidity of Thailand.

    I think that is such a fun idea. I saw a post in Gaharu about growing aquilaria trees in Florida. If it is not in a greenhouse like what you are going to do, it would be a bad idea. Although the southern part of Florida has a tropical climate, it is prone to a frost or two every winter when Canada decides to blow some air down south. I have family that lost some of the most delicate tropical plants to it. If you get a sprout, take a picture for us!

    i think that idea are impossible because agarwood trees need only weather like asia and not even every country in asia only view in korea they dont have also japan if that idea are so easy im sure you will find agarwood trees in japan and korea ...

    Did you have any success? I would like to try the same for the fun of it. I think it's hard to get viable seeds in Europe.

    I read that the seeds have to be planted shortly after they are picked. If they are being shipped any distance they might not able to sprout. Is this correct? I have no personal experience: just repeating what I remember reading.

    I tried a while ago with seeds bought from the internet, with no success in sprouting. Maybe I got old stock
