    These Dracaena seeds have been grown and produced in San Marcos by a credible grower. Keep them in a cool, dark place if not using right away.


    We recommend using the following to sow the seeds: 

    To plant, scarify the seeds so that moisture can reach through the outer coat of the seed, you can use something sharp like a scalpel to cut away gently at the outer coating. You can either us the paper towel method(reference or pre-soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hrs before planting and plant in moist potting mix and cover with plastic (like a ziploc bag) to maintain warmth and humidity.

    Keep it brightly lit, these can be in light direct sun, and make sure the soil remains moist but not soggy and keep the temperatures between 70-85(ideally closer to around 80F).

    The seeds take anywhere from 2-3 months to germinate.

    When the seedlings germinate, start to acclimate to fresh air by removing the covering(if you have one) for a couple of hours at a time and make sure to provide lots of light(direct sun is ok!) to the seedlings so they can grow quicker.

    If you have any issues at all with getting your seeds to sprout, please don't hesitate to reach out! I'd be happy to help guide you through creating the right conditions for the seeds.

    These seeds are for the 2024 growing season.

    Successful Germination

    First seed has sprouted via paper towel method after a month (March 27th arrival date to April 27th sprout first observed). I found these much easier to germinate than the bird of paradise.

    This one broke through on its own without scarification, but I suspect the others will have an easier time sprouting now that I've found the best spot to scarify. The seed has a distinct circle where it has separated from its flower, and there's a line that goes down the side and ends at a dot that may protrude. This is the point where the seed will sprout and will be the best spot to sand or file lightly (don't go too deep as this will damage the tissue the sprout will grow from).


    Great packaging and planting instructions

    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!

    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 and we can help out! If the seeds still aren't germinating, we'll send out a replacement :)
