Paulownia Elongata, commonly known as the Princess Tree, is renowned for its exceptional growth rate and is often referred to as one of the fastest-growing trees in the world.

Germination Instructions:

  1. Seed preparation: Soaking the seeds in warm water for 24 hours can help soften the seed coat and improve germination rates. This process is known as scarification and can enhance water absorption.

  2. Seed starting mix: Fill seed trays or small pots with a well-draining seed starting mix. You can create a mix by combining equal parts of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. Alternatively, you can use a pre-made seed starting mix available from garden centers.

  3. Sowing seeds: Place the scarified Paulownia Elongata seeds on top of the seed starting mix. Press them gently into the surface or lightly cover them with a thin layer of the mix. Keep the seeds spaced about an inch apart to allow sufficient room for growth.

  4. Moisture and covering: Mist the seeds with water or use a spray bottle to moisten the surface of the mix. Cover the tray or pots with a clear plastic dome or a plastic wrap to create a humid environment. This helps retain moisture and promote germination. Ensure the cover has some ventilation holes to prevent excessive condensation.

  5. Warmth and light: Paulownia Elongata seeds require warmth and light to germinate. Place the tray or pots in a warm location with a temperature range of around 70-85°F (21-29°C). You can also use a seedling heat mat to provide consistent bottom heat, which aids in germination. Additionally, provide bright, indirect light or use fluorescent grow lights placed a few inches above the seeds.

  6. Germination and growth: Paulownia Elongata seeds typically germinate within 7 to 14 days, but it can vary depending on the conditions. Once the seedlings emerge, remove the plastic cover and continue to provide them with bright light. Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged to prevent root rot.

  7. Transplanting: When the Paulownia Elongata seedlings develop their first set of true leaves, usually after 4 to 6 weeks, they are ready for transplanting into individual pots or into a larger container or garden bed outdoors. Use a well-draining potting mix or prepare the planting site with fertile, loamy soil.

  8. Care and maintenance: Paulownia Elongata thrives in full sun and prefers a warm climate. Water the seedlings regularly, allowing the top inch of soil to dry between waterings. Provide protection from strong winds as the young trees establish. Fertilize the plants with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer according to the manufacturer's instructions.
