How To Plant Brugmansia Seeds

Sheri Ann Richerson

Brugmansia seed typically germinate somewhere between 2 to 10 weeks – however sometimes seed can germinate faster or slower spending on germination conditions (temperature, light, moisture, etc.).

I purchased this pack of  30 plus assorted, Brugmansia hybrid seeds from Sumner Gardens.

I wanted to buy the seeds because I lost my large Brugmansia plant a couple of years back, they don’t sell these plants locally and I really love this plant.

Now I have bought all of my plants in the past, but I decided to go with seed because these are crosses from his plants and you never know what you’re going to end up with.

I like to soak the seeds for 24 to 48 hours, but this time I’m not going to do that since I already have my peat pots expanded.

I want to make sure that these make really good contact with the soil, because if they’re not making contact with the soil, they are not going to germinate right.

These will flower next year, and I will be able to see what colors and styles of flowers I have.

Brugmansia can flower in as little as 9 months under ideal conditions, however in colder climates it can take 18 months or more before you get your first flower.
