Germination of

Orbea dummeri

Dummer Star Flower: Dummer's Star, Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum Dubium

Orbea dummeri

Orbea dummeri seeds can be germinated either indoors or outdoors. The best time to sow the seeds is during the spring season when the temperature is warm. To begin with, fill a seed tray or pot with well-draining soil mix. The soil should be moist but not waterlogged. Press the seeds gently into the soil and cover them with a thin layer of sand or soil mix. Water the soil gently using a mist spray or a watering can with a fine spray attachment.

Place the seed tray or pot in a warm location with bright, indirect light. The ideal temperature for germination is between 70-80�F. Keep the soil moist by watering it gently every few days. Avoid overwatering as it can cause the seeds to rot.

Germination may take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the temperature and other environmental factors. Once the seeds have germinated and grown to a height of around 1 inch, they can be transplanted into individual pots.

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.
