Is it possible to grow a clementine plant from a seed that I find in the fruit? I have been told that commercial growers deliberately grow like plants in blocks, in such a way that the seed is not capable of growing into plants. I think this process has something to do with polyembyronic vs monoembyronic.
I was also told that whatever I did manage to grow would be a hybrid between clementine and whatever other citrus plant was around. So it could be a cross between say a lemon and a clementine?
Excuse me if these questions are stupid.I know I could possibly buy a young plant or at least the correct seeds, but I would find more pleasure in being able to grow from scratch, from whatever seeds I find.
As for the growing process... As I understand it, I need to keep the seed moist and warm, put some peat soil in a zipper bag and a couple of seeds, lightly press it together to form a lump and add some water so its very damp but not excessively drenched. After 3 weeks it sprouts and I can transfer it to say... a paper cup with a plastic bag over it to keep humidity up, all the while keeping the young plant warm, say , by placing on a warm dvd player that's always left on.
Correct me i'f im wrong.
