Margaritaria nobilis

Sow Margaritaria nobilis seeds in well-draining soil about 1/4 inch deep. Maintain a temperature of around 70-80°F (21-27°C) and provide consistent moisture. 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.
