Germination of

Stapelia Rufa

Carrion Starfish Flower Plant: Stapelia gigantea, Starfish Flower, Zulu Giant

Stapelia Rufa

Stapelia Rufa: The germination requirements for Stapelia Rufa are similar to those of Stapelia Gettleffii. Sow the seeds on the surface of a well-draining soil mix and keep the soil moist and warm. Germination can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks to several months.

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.
