You can achieve better germination results with Bald Cypress by cold-stratification.  After collecting the seeds, place them in a moist air-tight container (zip-lock bag with moist moss or paper towels...and by "moist" I mean you can invert the container and no water drips out of your moss/paper).  Store them in the refrigerator for 60-90 days (I have heard that 90 days is better) and then plant.  After this, germination will be random...anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months.

Expertise

I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.

Experience

I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
