Sowing Direction:

(8) These perennial seeds germinate very irregularly over a long period. Lower temperatures of less than +5°C [41°F] are very effective. Seed trays should not be discarded prematurely. Constant moisture must be maintained. Do not leave in direct sunlight. For Alstroemeria we recommend to keep sowing for 3 weeks at approximately +30°C [86°F], then 3 weeks at +5°C [41°F], then at +21°C [70°F].

Best Sowing Date
(northern Hemisphere, Field condition):
late autumn - early spring
Sowing to Germination: 4 - 6 weeks
Germination to Transplant: 4 - 6 weeks
Transplanting to Potting: 4 - 6 weeks
Cutting back at Transplanting: Cut-back once to keep more compact.
Container Size(s): 1 plug per 8/9 cm (3 1/2") / 1-2 plugs per 11/12 cm (4 1/2")
