Germination of

Puya weberiana

Desert Lantern Bromeliad - Desert Star, Golden Star, Cinnamon Star

Puya weberiana

To germinate Puya weberiana, the seeds should be sown in a well-draining potting mix. The seeds should be sown on the surface of the soil and not covered as they require light for germination. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and place the pot in a warm, bright location. The ideal temperature range for germination is 60-70�F (16-21�C).

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.
