How to Grow Cabbage Palm

Cobaea Germination Information

Cobaea is the botanical name for Cabbage Palm
Cordyline Seed Germination How to Sow Cordyline:
  • Best sown indoors at alternating temperatures of 68 and 86°
  • Sow with NO cover as light aids in germination
  • Expect slow and erratic germination in 30-40 days
  • It is not recommended to sow seeds outdoors

How to Grow Cordyline:
Spacing: Site plants in full sun in a light, moist, well-drained medium on the slightly acidic side (keep below 6.5)

Transplanting: Transplant seedlings when there are at least two sets of true leaves. About 8 to 10 weeks will pass from germination to having a sizable plant suitable for adding impact to container plantings

Appearance and Use:

A small (20-30 feet tall) tree in sub-tropical regions, it is otherwise grown as an annual for adding vertical accent and spiky foliage texture to showy container plantings. Also grown as a house and conservatory plant. When grown as an annual it will reach 3 to 6 feet tall during the summer growing season. The long (3-6 feet), lance-shaped, narrow, leathery foliage arises from a woody stem, and often has a red center vein. The creamy, sweet-smelling, 1/2- 1/4 inch diameter flowers are only seen on larger plants. Each flower is shaped like a shallow cup and they are borne in large, 51/2 feet long panicles in the summer
