Описание

Increase watering slightly after germination. Drizzle water around the base of the moss verbena seedlings before the soil surface dries out completely. Avoid getting water on the seedling since excess moisture on the leaves increases the likelihood of fungal infection.

Start moss verbena seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last spring frost. Soak the seeds in a bowl of water for an hour or two to determine which are viable. Discard the seeds that float and sow those that sink.

Sometimes called cutleaf vervain, moss verbena (Glandularia puchella) is a tender perennial plant species favored for its ferny, aromatic foliage and dainty white flower clusters. It thrives within U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9B to 11, where it is widely planted as a ground cover or container plant. Moss verbena grows well from seeds, which germinate reliably when exposed to warm temperatures. Although the seeds require no pretreatment and little hands-on care to germinate, the growing medium must be kept slightly dry after sowing to prevent potentially damaging fungal infections and bacterial growth.

Move the moss verbena seedlings outdoors once nighttime temperatures stay reliably above 55 F. Place the pots in a sheltered area out of direct sunlight. Acclimate the plants to direct sun for a few days before transplanting them into the garden.

Place the potted moss verbena seeds near a large window with eight hours of sun exposure each day. Warm the bottom of the pots with a germination mat. Set the temperature on the mat to between 70 and 75 F.

Fill individual 3-inch starter pots with a mix of three parts sterile potting soil and one part coarse sand. Leave the top 1/2-inch of each pot empty. Moisten the growing mix and allow it to drain.

Check the moisture level in the soil mixture twice daily. Water if the soil feels almost completely dry on the surface. Mist the seeds with a spray bottle until the growing mixture feels moderately moist in the top 1/4-inch.

Sow two moss verbena seeds in each starter pot. Press them onto the surface of the growing mix, and then cover them with a 1/16-inch-thick layer of soil. Gently firm the soil to anchor the seeds and mist with water.

Watch for the first signs of sprouting in two to four weeks. Thin out the smaller and weaker of the two moss verbena seedlings from each pot, if both of the seeds successfully germinate.
