Germination of

Dracunculus vulgaris

Vampire Lily: Dracula Lily, Voodoo Lily, Corpse Flower

Dracunculus vulgaris

Dracunculus vulgaris: Dracunculus vulgaris seeds should be soaked in water for 24 hours before planting. Sow the seeds in a well-draining soil mix, and cover with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and place the pot in a warm, bright location. Germination can take several weeks to several 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.
