How to Grow Rhodochiton from Seed

Rhodochiton is a sought-after, yet delicate, Mexican beauty. These exceptional quick-growing plants need to be container grown in a conservatory or cool greenhouse or at very least brought inside for the winter. A deciduous perennial which both trails and climbs, given support, Rhodochiton has simple heart shaped leaves and pendulous tubular flowers. Very frost sensitive and susceptible to damage in temperatures below 5C (41F)

Sow indoors from January to March, 1.5cm or ½ an inch deep, in trays of compost.
A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal for germination to occur, usually within 14-42 days. 

Transplant into individual 3 inch pots when the seedlings are large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold, conditions before transplanting again into a large container.
