Livingstone Daisy, Ice Plant (Dorotheanthus bellidiformis) (D'Seeds, Coutry of Origin - Netherlands)
GROWING ICE PLANT FROM SEED
Set yourself up to grow a ton of this stuff. Nursery flats work fine for Livingstone daisies, and if you plant extras, you'll have some low-maintenance gifts to pass along to friends and neighbors. Go the extra mile and make living arrangements of potted succulents and sedums; even your black-thumbed buddies will enjoy them, since they do better when they're neglected than they do when they're coddled.
Seed Treatment: Ice plant seeds benefit from a 12-hour soak using the paper towel stratification method.
When to Plant Outdoors: Plant after your last spring frost.
When to Plant Indoors: 6 to 8 weeks before your last spring frost; germinate them in a room that's between 65°F and 70°F, either in a very sunny window or under grow lights.
Seed Depth: 1/8" deep, or surface-sow; ice plant requires sunlight to germinate.
Seed Spacing: Thin or plant 12" to 18" apart.
Days to Germination: 12 to 24 days
Transplanting Tips: Plant your seedlings when they've reached about 2” to 3" tall. We recommend a week or so of hardening off before you send them packing to their forever home.
