Hibiscus moscheutos 'palustris'

Sow the seeds on the surface of a moist, well-draining soil mix. Provide warmth, bright indirect light, and consistent moisture for 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.
