Mexican Shell Flower SEEDS (Tigridia pavonia) 'Color Mix'
ALSO KNOW AS : Peacock Flower, Tiger Flower
This horticultural mix produces flowers ranging from white to yellow, pink and red. Tigridia pavonia is originally native from southern Mexico to Honduras. It is a quick and easy to grow perennial that will flower the same year it was sown and will come back from a small bulb in consecutive years.
Create rows in the seed starter mixture 1 inch apart. Plant the Tigridia pavonia seeds spaced 1 inch apart. Leave the seeds uncovered since they need light to germinate. Cover the seed tray with the plastic cover.
Place the tray in a warm spot that stays at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not set the tray in direct sunlight, since it might raise the temperature too high under the plastic lid. Spray the seed with water if the soil looks dry.
Remove the cover when the seedlings are 2 to 3 inches tall. Transplant the plants into individual plant pots 3 inches in diameter. The Tigridia pavonia are ready to plant by May.
