Growing Hydrangea from Seed

What do hydrangea seeds look like when they first sprout? I planted some hydrangea seeds, and have been waiting patiently for them to sprout. I have noticed some white spots in the tray where I planted them. But am not sure if it's the hydrangea spout or not. It seems to be at a stand still right on top of the soil. If it is the hydrangea, they have stopped growing or grow very slowly. Can anyone help? I am new at this. Thanks.

if you're starting from seed you have to start it in porous potting soil like vermiculite, watering before planting the seeds and then then putting plastic wrap over it, and covering up again with saran wrap after planting the seeds. As can be seen, it needs a humid environment to grow.

Then make sure they get lots of light but do not put them in direct sunlight - these plants as a rule are not direct sun plants and grow best in semi shade so as seedlings it's the same

So, enough moisture + enough light but not direct should be a good thing

Hydrangeas are awesome. They are gorgeous now and I have big hydrangea envy.

These sites were helpful, but I never had luck with growing from seed, graft or plant.

I wish you better luck than I had. I think I was pound foolish by not investing in good potting soil and my other challenge is the dirt around my house has poor quality so the plants never had a chance. Sigh...

If I were you, I would get a cutting from someone and use rooting hormone. Its harder to grow from seed.
