Dracaena cochinchinensis

Dracaena cochinchinensis: Dracaena cochinchinensis is a tropical plant that can be propagated from seeds. Sow the seeds in a well-draining soil mix and cover them with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and maintain a temperature between 25-30�C (77-86�F). Germination can take several weeks to a few months.

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.
