Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia, seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoiding the coldest and hottest months. The optimum germination temperature for this species is around 18-22°C.

Pre-treatment of smoke recommended

This genus is responsive to smoke, and although it is not critical for the germination of this species, it is usually beneficial in reducing the number of days to germination and increasing germination rates.Smoke treatments are available by clicking here.

Sow seed on the surface of a porous seed-raising mix.
Sprinkle a very light covering of the seed-raising mix over the seed if required to hold the seed in place. Do not bury the seed deeply.
Place in a warm, shaded, or semi-shaded position. Keep warm & moist, and avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.

Germination generally occurs in around 24-28 days but may take longer depending on the conditions.

*Please note:

  • Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
