Camellias are almost as easy to grow from seeds as marigolds. Although seedlings rarely look like their parents, seed propagation is an easy way to grow large number of Camellias. Plant seeds about one-half inch deep in any well drained potting soil, cover trays or pots with plastic wrap to help retain moisture, and place in a warm area such as on top of the refrigerator. Germination usually takes from two to four months to germinate. Do not allow soil to dry out. Camellias grown from seed can take 5 years to bloom.
