The Q&A Archives: Germination Time For Cobaea

Questioner's Location: Manasquan, NJ
Date: May 6, 2001

Question: I planted Moonflower, Spanish Flag and Cobaea seeds indoors.
Most of the Moonflowers have sprouted, a few of the Spanish Flag have appeared, however, there's no sign of any life for the Cobaea seeds.

Am I doing something wrong or am I just being impatient?


Answer: Cobaea seeds usually take 10-30 days to germinate when kept at 70F-75F. The seeds have a thick coat and you can speed up the germination process by nicking the seeds prior to sowing. If you didn't nick the seeds, they will probably take the full 4 weeks to sprout. Don't give up on them yet!
