Germination guide
Nuytsia floribunda seeds will usually germinate in 20 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Sow seeds about 1mm deep in a sterile, sandy, free draining (lightly cover seeds with fine sand) seed sowing mix at about 22C.

Keep the sand humid, not wet. You will need to have established hosts ready for your germinated seeds, Restionaceae and sedge grasses are typical, so probably best to begin with, but it seems any roots will do.
