PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: seeds, scrub division, cuttings. Not all species mature seeds. Plants mature seeds if days are sunny in Autumn or plants are in a green house. Seeds are sown in the Early Spring (between February and March). The flower begins blooming in 5-6 months. Substrate for sowing could be mixed from a turfy soil, peat and sand 1:2:1. Seeds germinate within 5-7 days. Seedlings are pricked out when 1-2 true leaves appear. Scrub is divided during replantation. The flower is propagated by cuttings between February and April (if plants were growing in greenhouse) or in May (if they were grown outdoors). Substrate could be mixed from peat, sand and pearlite. Rooting lasts 14-18 days.
