Gloriosa carsonii

Gloriosa carsonii & Gloriosa lutea: Soak seeds for 24 hours and then plant in a well-draining, sandy soil mix. Maintain soil moisture and warmth around 70-80°F (21-27°C). 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.
