Bacopa Seeds

capebretoner(z4 quebec)January 18, 2010

I have purchased Bacopa White seeds from Canadian Tire today and just wondering if anyone has ever tried growing them from seeds and if so were they covered or need light to germinate. They are expensive and get only 10 for $5.00 so don't want to waste them. Thank You

I've grown bacopa from seed. It needs light to germinate. The seed should not be covered but the seed starting cotainer needs to be covered to retain humidity. The seed pellets may need misting, so that the seedlings can break through the coating. Start 10-12 weeks before your last frost date. My seeds often yielded more than one plant per pellet, which I seperated into single plants for growing on.

Like petunias and begonias from seed, bacopa seems to have poor seedling vigor. Keep your conditions constant. Don't let it dry out, but don't overwater.

I've had enough success to keep on growing it. Hope this helps.
