Ficus religiosa

Ficus religiosa seeds require a warm, humid environment for germination. It is recommended to soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours before sowing. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch deep in a good quality seed starting mix and cover with plastic wrap or a humidity dome to maintain moisture levels. Provide bright, indirect light and a temperature of around 80�F (27�C) for optimal germination.

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.
