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.
Mirabilis multiflora seeds will usually germinate in 7-21 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
Outdoor Treatment, in temperate regions, can give Mirabilis multiflora seeds exactly the sequence of cold and damp and warm conditions needed to encourage germination. Check your weather conditions to see whether they may be appropriate. Shady sheltered conditions are recommended (to keep humidity and temperature regular) in a free draining, but water retentive medium - this can be in pots in a cold frame, where they can be easily protected from weeds and animals.
Scarification and cold stratification improve germination. Will make a large root (can be several feet long) that should survive cold and drought, but not prolonged waterlogging.
