    In forest nurseries, a frequently limited resource is water. With the use of water polymers it is possible to increase percentage of seed germination and improve water use for the growth and development of seedlings. The objectives of this research was to determine whether the use of water polymers can increase seed germination and whether to consider the type of substrate and watering frequency the most important factors in germination and growth. The following experiments were carried out: percentage of germination, using five proportions of organic matter (peat moss) mixed with a silt substrate, two levels of irrigation (limited and unlimited) and two substrate mixes (100 % silt and 50 % silt + 50 % peat moss). The results for the first test showed that the best results were obtained when the substrate had high levels of organic matter and unlimited irrigation; efficiency of the polymer was average. For the experiment on seedling growth and development, using morphological parameters, it was found that the polymer had some influence, but unlimited watering is considered the most important factor.
