Germination of

Platycodon grandiflorus

Fuji Blue Balloon Flower: Platycodon grandiflorus, Chinese Bellflower, Bluebell Bellflower

Platycodon grandiflorus

Platycodon grandiflorus seeds can be germinated by sowing them in a well-draining potting mix and covering lightly with soil. Keep the soil moist and place in a warm, bright location. Germination typically takes 2-3 weeks. Once the seedlings have grown several sets of leaves, they can be transplanted into individual containers.

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.
