Alisma plantago-aquatica

Germination Tips


Sow immediately. The viability of these seeds is short or the species propagates best with fresh seed. Stored seed might be coaxed into germination with temperature cycling and patience.


Sow @ 20°C. If seed does not germinate within 3 months, try 4°C for 1-2 months, then 20°C again.


This species needs special care as described.
Special Care: 
20°C (light), then 4°C, then raise temperature slowly to 20°C (dark), keep seed pot standing in 3 cm of water
Most of the seeds in our Germination Guide have been offered from time to time in our annual Seed Exchange (Seedex).
