This article focuses on the propagation of Headed Cabbage as well as the factors that influence the germination and growth of its seeds. Brassica oleracea (you can grow var. Capita commercially or in a small garden for family use. the common propagation technique is by seed.
The options of propagation are by either sowing directly in the field to the final sites or in germination rooms/greenhouses. Where the seedlings will reach a certain stage in their development before being transplanted into the field.
Effect of Temperature on Propagation of Headed Cabbage
The success of propagating depends on soil and atmospheric factors. The soil temperature (or seed medium temperature) is one of the most important. Headed Cabbage seeds germinate at soil temperatures of between 10 (50°F) and 30°C (86°F). It is common to see the following:
- 10 days at 10°C (5°F).
- 9 Days at 15°C (59°F)
- 6 Days at 20°C (68°F)
- 5 days at 25°C (77°F)
- 4 days at 30°C (86°F)
The ideal soil temperature for Headed Cabbage seeds to germinate, can range from 15 to 20°C (59-68°F).
Effects of Soil in Propagation
The success of propagating depends on soil moisture and atmospheric humidity. For seeds to germinate, they must have high moisture content at the beginning of sowing. If you don’t check it daily, the high levels in soil or soil medium will cause abnormal air circulation, oxygen deficiency in the rhizosphere, and disease development. This can then lead to the decaying in seedlings.
What Affects the Germination of Headed Cabbage
There are many factors that affect the success of Cabbage propagation. There are many factors that influence the success of Headed Cabbage. Each of these factors has a different impact on seed germination.
It is crucial that you have the following skills in order to ensure successful germination and subsequent successful growth of your seedlings:
- Season and time of the Headed Cabbage Seed Harvest
- The harvest quality of the seeds
- The temperature of the soil (or soil medium) and air
- Soil moisture (or soil medium), and atmospheric humidity
- The air, oxygen of the soil (or its medium).
