The Q&A Archives: Growing Spigelia (Indian Pink) from Seed
Question: I have about 20 seeds of spigelia marilandica (Indian Pink) that were collected fom the wild. Recently, some of these plants have been showing up in nurseries, so propagation must be relatively simple. However, I cannot find any recommedations for germination in any of my 7 or 8 propagation books. Any suggestions for light requirements, optimal temp, etc? Right now the seeds are in cool, moist stratification. Craig Dukes Blythewood, SC
Answer: Spigelia can be grown from seed. Grow it indoors under bright, indirect light, grown in a moist, loamy-based soil mix with a minimum temperature on 50F. Keep well watered and enjoy!
