Germination of

Phyllanthus emblica

Indian Gooseberry: Amla, Phyllanthus emblica

Phyllanthus emblica

Phyllanthus emblica: Indian gooseberry seeds can be soaked in warm water for 24 hours to speed up the germination process. Plant them in a well-draining soil mix, cover with a thin layer of soil, and keep consistently moist. Germination should occur within 2-3 weeks.

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.
