Germination of

Grevillea sp.

Red Spider Flower: Scarlet spiderling, Crimson spiderwort

Grevillea sp.

Grevillea sp. is a plant that can be grown from seeds. The seeds can be sown at any time of the year. To sow the seeds, first, moisten the seed-starting mix, then fill a seed tray with the mix. Scatter the seeds over the top of the mix, then lightly cover with more mix. The seeds should be kept moist but not too wet, and placed in a warm, bright location. The germination time can vary from several weeks to several months, but usually occurs within 3 to 6 weeks. Once the seedlings have reached a size where they can be easily handled, they can be transplanted into individual pots.

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.
