Hechtia texensis

Hechtia texensis: Hechtia texensis is a type of bromeliad that can be propagated from seeds. The seeds should be sown in a well-draining soil mix and covered with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and maintain a temperature between 18-24�C (64-75�F). Germination can take several weeks to a few months, and it's important to keep the soil moist during this time.

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.
