Conophytum maughanii

Conophytum maughanii: Conophytum maughanii is a small, succulent plant native to South Africa that is commonly grown as an ornamental. To germinate Conophytum maughanii, start by soaking the seeds in warm water for about 24 hours. After soaking, plant the seeds in a well-draining soil mixture and lightly cover them with soil. Place the pot in a warm and bright location, ideally with a temperature between 65-75�F (18-24�C). Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged by misting it regularly. Germination typically occurs within 2-4 weeks. Once the seedlings have grown to a sufficient size, they can be transplanted into individual pots.

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.
