I have received thunbergia alata mix seeds from Burpee, and would like more specific information about starting seeds indoors, i.e., can it be done, how long before frost date, what temperature is best, and approximate time to germinate. This is a greatservice, thanks for your help!

Thunbergia can absolutely be started indoors. Start them indoors 6-8 wks. before the last frost date for your area. Seeds should germinate in 14-30 days, a soil temperature of 70-75F is best. Be sure to use a sterile soilless mix and sterile containers for starting. Provide your seedlings with ample light and good air circulation.
