Hypoestes seeds will germinate easily at regular room temperatures or outdoor temperatures after all danger of frost has passed. You can start them indoors in mid-spring, using our line of Jiffy® products which enable you to germinate the seeds indoors, transplanting them later without disturbing the roots. Outdoors, simply wait until all danger of frost has passed and sow in a well-prepared bed, covering the seeds lightly with a seeding mix or vermiculite. Keep the seeds consistently moist; germination can occur in as little as 2 to 3 days at 70°F! Hypoestes will self-sow readily in zone 11, so snipping the flowers there is recommended unless you don't mind the overflow to other beds or containers.
