Conophytum burgeri

Conophytum burgeri: Conophytum seeds require specific conditions to germinate. The seeds should be sown on a well-draining soil mix and pressed lightly into the soil surface. Then, place the pot in a warm, bright spot that receives indirect sunlight. Keep the soil lightly moist but not wet. The seeds will usually germinate within 2-4 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.
