Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

They should be planted in well drained garden soil that has been enriched with a generous amount of compost and peat moss. When growing Calceolarias as house plants, they should be planted in a peat moss based potting mix. Pre-fertilized potting mixes work well. Pouch Flowers grow best in a cool (60°-65° during the day, 50°-55° at night), draft free area where they will receive plenty of bright, indirect light, but not full sun.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Mid Autumn

Calceolarias can be propagated with stem tip cuttings which should be taken in mid to late summer. Calceolaria seeds require light for germination, so do NOT cover them! Start Pouch Flower seeds indoors, in the autumn for spring planting in the garden, or at anytime if you plan to grow them as house plants. Maintain a temperature in the growing medium of 70°-75° until germination, which only takes 5-10 days. After germination, only water enough to keep the growing medium barely moist to help prevent the damping off fungus. NEVER allow the soil to dry out completely!
