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.


This species needs special care as described.


Sow @ 20°C. Seed germinates within 3 months.
Special Care: 
Sow 5 mm deep in a pocket of sand in a 9 cm pots which contains well drained soil. Germinate in bright light @ 26 °C. Keep moist, but not too wet. During the dormant period, small plants may still need a little watering.
Most of the seeds in our Germination Guide have been offered from time to time in our annual Seed Exchange (Seedex).
