The Q&A Archives: Growing Pentas From Seed

Question: I have Pentas (star flower) that I bought as young plants<br>but I would like to grow them from seeds. Can I? Where can I get seeds?

Answer: Pentas are usually propagated from cuttings, since cuttings root so easily, but you can start them from seed. Sow them in moist seed-starting medium and maintain warm temperatures (the top of your refrigerator provides great root-zone heating). Germination takes 3-4 weeks. Here's a source for pentas, but I'm not sure if they offer seeds or just plants: <br><br>Far North Gardens, 16785 Harrison, Livonia, MI 48154;<br>ph# 810/486-4203.
