Species Calceolaria paralia
Germination Sow seed directly on the media surface in a plug tray in a finely ground germination mix. Make sure seeds are exposed to light. Keep the mix moist but not over watered. In addition, make sure media PH ranges from 5.7-6.5. Germinate seed with media temperature of 68F-72F. Germination typically occurs in 8-10 days. Transplant seedlings from the plug tray after 3-4 weeks when seedlings are large enough to handle. The germination can take longer. Be patient!

They should be wintered in a greenhouse with a night temperature of about 40ø, on a shelf near the light. By the end of February, move them into 8-10 in pots, using a compost of 3 parts good turf loam, 1 part leaf-mould, and 1 part thoroughly - rotten manure, with a fair addition of sand. They need plenty of light and air, but must not be subjected to draughts. When the pots get well filled with roots, they must be liberally supplied with manure water. In all stages of growth the plants are subject to the attacks of the green-fly, for which they must be fumigated. The plants will start to flower in ten months from sowing.
