Abrus precatorius

Rosary Peas prefer warm temperatures for germination. Soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before planting. Plant the seeds about 1/2 inch deep in well-draining soil. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Place the pots or trays in a warm, sunny location. Germination typically occurs within 7 to 14 days.

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.
