Dichondra argentea Germination Information

Dichondra argentea Seed Germination How to Sow Dichondra argentea:
  • Best sown indoors at 68-70°
  • Sow seeds 6-8 weeks before planting out and at a depth of 4 times the diameter of the seed
  • Germinates in 10-15 days
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Dichondra argentea:
Spacing:  Space When planting outdoors, Plant seedlings out at 3-6 inches apart in full sun to partial shade

Soil: Normal, loamy garden soil is used. Very tolerant of heat and drought, in fact, it grows faster when kept on the dry side. Feed with a slow release fertilizer

Transplanting: Transplant seedlings when there are at least two sets of true leaves

Temperature: Grow on at 65-75° days and 62-65° nights and provide full sun to keep plants compact and to enhance the silvery quality of the foliage

Additional Care: Keep the plants watered and fertilized. Delphinium grows best in a cool climate; taller varieties may require staking. Remove faded blooms to prevent seed formation

Appearance and Use:

A spreading plant from 3 inches tall to 6 feet wide, it is primarily grown for its green, silver, or gray foliage. It makes a nice foliage addition to container plantings, but it has enough merit to stand on its own in a hanging basket or as a groundcover. When grow in containers and baskets, it will cascade over the sides. One inch diameter, 5-lobed, white, green, or yellow flowers do make an appearance, but they are nondescript and are not the reason why this plant is grown. The 3/4 to 1 inch, rounded fan-shaped foliage is the decorative aspect

D. Argentea: Green to silver foliage. Used primarily in baskets and containers
