Propagation Environment: Greenhouse film is made of Standard U.V. 3HL Clear 6 mil from (J.R. Johnson's Greenhouse Supply Inc.) Fans run continuously to circulate the air. Vents open during the summer months to allow for cooling. Container Type: Blue-eyed grass grows best in 14"x8.5" trays having 24 cells, each cell being 2" in diameter and 4" deep. Growing Media: Scotts Redi-earth Plug and Seedling Mix. Contains vermiculite,and sphagnum peat moss. Soil is sterile.
Add enough water to the soil to saturate. Mix soil with a trowel. Cover the holes in the botton/sides of the plug tray cells with newspaper, as the soil will fall through. Fill cells with damp soil and press soil down with a spoon. Refill the cell plugs with soil to the top, this time not pressing it down. Thoroughly moisten the soil in the plug cells, but do not saturate. Sow the seeds by hand at a rate of about 3 seeds in each cell. Do not cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate. Sow year-round due to variable germination rates. This species grows relatively slowly with about 10% of seeds germinating.
