    Instructions:

    We recommend using the following to sow the seeds: 

    Monstera deliciosa seeds do not store well, so if not planting right away, store in sphagnum moss in a baggie in the fridge to prevent rot and drying out. Germinating fresh seeds is easy and quick, and germination rates vary from 50%-100% depending on setup and freshness of the seeds.

    These seeds are for the 2024 growing season.

    Healthy Seeds!

    Beautiful, healthy seeds. Some took less than a couple weeks to germinate, others took nearly a month. Be patient! 9 out of 10 germinated perfectly! The 10th seed did start, but I needed my tray for another plant.

    Great seeds to start with

    I have had great success with the seeds. I strongly encourage you to soak them as you will have a much better germination rate.

    Great results

    I bought these seeds in December of 2022 and I now have multiple monsteras that I am proud of.

    I’m still waiting on sprouts but I think I can see it slowly coming out, I try not to bother the humidity dome that I have it in so it won’t mess up the humidity levels but it looks great so far

    FAQs

    how difficult are these seeds to grow?

    Houseplant seeds are generally trickier to grow than your more common garden seed varieties- they require a specific setup and more time to sprout. You can find the difficulty for each seed variety specified under the "about the seeds" tab on each product page.

    We definitely recommend following the setups outlined in our seed guide here, and you can find further details in our blog!

    how long does it take for the seeds to germinate?

    Houseplant seeds take longer than most seeds to germinate, the average time for germination is 2-3 weeks. If you're curious about the sprouting time for a specific seed variety, you can find that information in the "about the seeds" tab on each product page.

    how do I grow houseplant seeds?

    All of our orders come with a basic starter guide for you to follow, but our seed guide here goes in much more detail and also offers alternative seed starter methods.

    We also include additional planting tips specific to each seed variety under the "instructions" tab of each product page. If you need extra help, don't hesitate to reach out to us at hello@plantflix.com!

    my seeds aren't germinating, what do I do?

    Houseplant seeds are tricky, and sometimes certain more difficult varieties can take some practice to finally get them to sprout!

    If you're having trouble with the seeds, you're not alone. Luckily there are ways to sometimes salvage seeds by adjusting the setup- this quiz can help diagnose any issues you may have with your setup and make suggestions for how to improve it.

    You can also email us at hello@plantflix.com and we can help out! If the seeds still aren't germinating, we'll send out a replacement :)
