Puya raimondii

Puya raimondii: Puya raimondii seeds should be sown in a container filled with well-draining soil. The seeds should be lightly covered with soil and kept moist at all times. The container should be placed in a bright location with filtered light and kept at a temperature of around 20-25�C. Germination can take several months to occur, so patience is key. Once the seedlings have emerged, they can be transplanted to individual containers or planted directly in the ground. Puya raimondii plants prefer well-draining soil and bright but filtered light.

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.
