Bush food: The flowers produce a sweet honey nectar which can either be sucked from the flowers or soaked in water to make a sweet drink.
Germination: The seed of Melaleuca species is usually quite easy by normal seed raising methods. No special pre-treatment is needed.
Germination should occur in 14 to 30 days. A common method used for germination of Melaleuca and related plants is the "bog method" where the pot containing the seeds is placed into a saucer of water until germination occurs.
This results in moisture reaching the seeds by capillary action and ensures that the seeds do not dry out.
