Blushing Bromeliad, Neoregelia carolinae, Blushing Bride.

Hechtia sphaeroblasta

Hechtia sphaeroblasta: To germinate Hechtia sphaeroblasta, start by soaking the seeds in water for 24-48 hours. Then, 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 place the pot in a warm location with bright, indirect light. Germination may take several weeks to occur.

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.
