Advice needed on growing Cobaea scanden (cup and saucer vine) from seed
London, United Kingdom
I wanted to grow some Cobaea from seed this year and have just sown 3 seeds (on their sides) into individual pots and put them in a heated propagator (it is not controllable and it seems to keep the propagater at 30oc). I only sowed 3 as I had heard that they need to be started early in the year to get them to flower before frosts, I have 6 seeds left and want to know if it is worth sowing them now, i.e. will I get them to flower this year? Also my propagator lid is semi-opaque, is this ok or should I put on a clear lid? It gets a lot of condensation on the inside, which I wipe off, is this correct/ ok conditions for the seeds?
I am new to seeds and would love to grow a cup and saucer vine, I am worried that by just sowing 3 my chances of getting one to full growth is limited, on the other hand I don't want to waste seeds/time on plants that will not have time to flower this year. Any help, advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.
