Setura cordata. Grow Bacopa from seed! This popular container plant, with its trailing habit and cascades of blue flowers, performed so well in our trials, it is comparable to plants grown from cuttings. Start 10 weeks before final frost. Height 2-6”, spread 12-18” Full sun to part shade. Multi-seed pellets. Approximately 10 pellets/pkg.
Seed is multi-pellet seed so should be sown on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover, instead, it requires regular misting to help breakdown the pellet and to aid germination. Place sown containers in a propagator or warm place. Keep temperature between 20-23 degrees C (68-75 F). Do not exclude light, once sown, as this helps germination. Germinates in 5-12 days. Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed at 6-9 inches apart. Prefers full sun to part shade.
Should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback.
