Hosta Seed

Hosta Ventricosa (Plaintain Lily) - If you have shade, start some Hosta seeds and enjoy this perennial. A great foliage plant that grows relatively quickly from seed and is easy to care for. Commonly called Plantain Lily, Hostas produce nectar rich flowers that hummingbirds can't resist.

Growing Hosta seeds is not difficult, and they sprout nicely indoors, under normal house conditions, with temperatures running 60 - 70F. Use a "peaty" starter mix and just lightly cover the seed with peat moss. Keep the seed moist but not saturated until germination. Sow seeds 8 - 10 weeks before frost season ends. Hosta care includes keeping the plant moist throughout the hot months of the summer. As a rule, they need 1 inch of water every week.
