    These seeds grow slowly, so we recommend using the following to sow the seeds: 

    Plant these seeds on the surface of well draining planting medium consisting of peat, perlite, and sand. Place them in a bright and warm spot(at least 70F). Placing a plastic covering over the seeds until they sprout helps maintain a good humidity and warmth level- it can be removed once the sprouts start to show up.

    They seeds usually germinate within 10-15 days or so. Make sure the sprouts don’t receive much direct sunlight for the first couple of months, after which they can be exposed gradually to more light.

    These seeds are for the 2024 growing season.

    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 :)
