Asclepias curassavica 'Silky Gold'

Start these seeds indoors. Sow them in seed trays with well-draining soil and press them lightly into the surface. Maintain a temperature of around 70-75°F (21-24°C) and provide bright light. Keep the soil consistently moist. Germination usually occurs within a few weeks.

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.
