The Q&A Archives: Growing Freesia Indoors

Question: I've followed the instructions on planting depth and bulb spacing for freesia. Since I want to grow them indoors, what temperature and how much light should the bulbs be getting?

Answer: Place the pots or pans, without watering them (assuming you planted them in moistened medium), in the shaded window of a cool room where the temperature remains between 45-55 degrees F. Under such conditions root growth will commence promptly. When thesprouts break through, place in a south window. After the flowers begin to form, raise nighttime temperatures to 60-65 degrees F. Water moderately and never let the soil dry out.
