Propagation


Seed – sown in January - March.

Seed just barely covered and kept at 20°C (68°F) until germination. If seed hasn‘t germinated in 4 weeks it is can be refrigerated for 2-4 weeks and then moved back to 15 - 20°C (68°F). After germination lower temperatures and plenty of light is needed so the seedlings won‘t become lanky.

A variety with yellow and green variegated leaves and flowers in varied shades of pink, violet, blue and white. It needs well drained soil and sun or partial shade. Self-seeds a little.
