Abroma augusta

To germinate Abroma augusta, the seeds should be sown in a seedling tray filled with a well-draining potting mix. The seeds should be sown on the surface of the soil and lightly covered with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and place the tray in a warm, bright location. The ideal temperature range for germination is 70-75�F (21-24�C).

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
