Excellent seeds

Looks like I have 3 sprouting 3 weeks in and it looks like another 5 trying to push through the soil. I’m quite happy!

Lovely plants that all sprouted!

The good news is they all sprouted. The bad news is....they all sprouted! Now I have to find room for all these lol! I wasn't expecting any of these to successfully sprout because I admittedly waited a bit long to plant them, but about 6 weeks after planting they have all sprouted and are very strong and healthy 💚 They are such beautiful plants! My husband loves Coleus so I got these for him and he is enjoying taking care of them. The shipping and packaging of my order was fantastic and the quality is unmatched. I will be buying so many more from Plantflix :)

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 :)
