Germination of

Aeonium tabuliforme

Dinner Plate Plant: Giant Elephant Ear, Elephant's Ear Plant, Alocasia Macrorrhiza

Aeonium tabuliforme

To germinate Aeonium tabuliforme, the seeds should be sown in a seedling tray filled with a well-draining potting mix. The seeds should be lightly pressed onto the surface of the soil and covered with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and place the tray in a bright, warm location, such as near a window or under grow lights. The ideal temperature range for germination is 60-65�F (15-18�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.
