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.
Mesembryanthemum crystallinum seeds will usually germinate in 3-28 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Mesembryanthemum crystallinum seeds have chemically differentiated germination, some germinating immediately, others taking up to 4 weeks to germinate.
