Synsepalum dulcificum

Synsepalum dulcificum: Synsepalum dulcificum, also known as the "miracle fruit," is a tropical plant that produces small, red berries containing seeds. To germinate the seeds, start by soaking them in water for 24 hours to help soften the hard seed coat. Then, prepare a well-draining potting mix with equal parts peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. Sow the seeds in the mix and cover lightly with a thin layer of vermiculite. Mist the surface of the mix with water to keep it moist, and cover the container with a clear plastic bag or lid to maintain humidity. Place the container in a warm, bright location, ideally with temperatures between 70-80�F (21-27�C). Germination can take anywhere from a few days to a few 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.
