Germination of

Cortaderia selloana 'Rosea'

Pink Pampas Grass: Pink pampas, Cortaderia selloana

Cortaderia selloana 'Rosea'

Cortaderia selloana 'Rosea': Cortaderia selloana 'Rosea' seeds can be germinated outdoors in the spring after the last frost date or indoors in a well-draining seed starting mix. Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and maintain a temperature between 70-75�F (21-24�C). The seeds should germinate within two to four weeks. Once the seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted into their own containers or a larger container with a well-draining soil mix.

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.
