Calceolaria Seeds as House Plants
Calceolaria Seeds When growing Calceolarias as house plants, they should be planted in a peat moss based potting mix.
Pre-fertilized potting mixes work well.
Pouch Flowers grow best in a cool (60°-65° during the day, 50°-55° at night), draft free area
where they will receive plenty of bright, indirect light, but not full sun.
Calceolaria Seeds To provide additional humidity, place the planter on a tray filled with moistened pebbles.
Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist but never soggy, especially when your Calceolarias are in bud or bloom.
Avoid getting water on the foliage and the crown.
Propagating Calceolaria Plants and Growing them from Seed
|Calceolarias can be propagated with stem tip cuttings
which should be taken in mid to late summer.Calceolaria seeds require light for germination, so DO NOT COVER THEM!
Start Pouch Flower seeds indoors, in the fall for spring planting in the garden,
or at anytime if you plan to grow them as house plants.Maintain a temperature in the growing medium of 70°-75° until germination,
which only takes 5-10 days.After germination, only water enough to keep the growing medium barely moist to help prevent the damping off fungus. NEVER allow the soil to dry out completely!
