Thank you for purchasing. The following is the germination method that we recommend:
- Get a seed raising mix from Bunnings or a soft soil mix such as 2/3 Peal moss and 1/3 Pearlite.
- Place the soil in a pot
- Place the seeds on the soil and gently press into the soil half-way so the the seeds are still visible.
- Keep moist but not soaked
- Within 10-14 days you will see a shoot come up
- Push the seedling into the soil if it isn’t in far enough
- Clivia’s will thrive in the shade with filtered light and limited direct sunlight
- Fertilise with Seasol Seaweed Concentrate after the plant has produced leaves and continue to fertilise once a month
- Enjoy your flowers!
*Another method is to wrap the seeds in a paper towel, wet it and place in a zip-lock bag. Place in a warm, dry place such as a windowsill until you see shoots start to form, then place in a seed-raising mix.
(You could try both to see which one you prefer.)
