Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.
Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like
require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Gynostemma pentaphyllum seeds will usually germinate in 28 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Soak Gynostemma pentaphyllum seeds in warm water for a day and a night, sow just below the surface of a sandy - peaty mix, keep at about 25°C, dark and moist (not damp)
Often poor or erratic germination, various seed treatments help: scarification, growth regulators, ultrasound. In nature seeds that do not germinate immediately vernalize (over Winter) and germinate in the spring.
