Nigella papillosa

Nigella papillosa: Nigella papillosa seeds can be germinated by sowing them in well-draining soil mix, covering them lightly with soil, and keeping the soil moist. The container should be placed in a cool and bright location, but not in direct sunlight. Germination usually occurs within a few 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.
