About Vinca Seeds

In most areas, annual vinca Catharanthus roseus is a tropic evergreen that is grown as an annual. Annual vinca possesses blooms and greenery that imitate impatiens instead of preferring the shade it thrives in the sun.

Vinca is a great plant for full sun or partial shade beds and borders. It makes an excellent edging or yearly groundcover due to its consistent growth and compact size.

Vinca is a fast-growing plant that grows 6 to 18 inches tall and has a comparable spread of different varieties.

How to collect vinca seeds

Leave a few vinca blossoms to stay on the plant until the petals fall off and the pods at the bottom of the flowers may be seen at the end of the flowering season. Look for tall slender green seedpods when collecting vinca seeds.

Pinch the seeds pods off the vinca vine with your fingernail or cut them off with a knife. If you wait much longer the pods will crack and the seeds will fall out. Place the pods in a paper bag and keep them warm and dry.

Remove the small black seeds once the pods are totally dried. The container should be labeled. Place the till planting time in a cool dry well-ventilated place.

How to grow vinca plant from seed

Vincas that are younger are easier to grow from seed. Plant the seeds indoors 12 to 16 weeks before your regular last frost date because they take a long time to flower. Seeds should be sown in seed-starting formula and then covered with 18 inches of soil.

After that cover the tray with a damp newspaper. Allow the seeds to sit in sufficient darkness to ensure germination. If necessary you can add more heat to obtain the appropriate germination temperature.

Before putting seedlings in the garden harden them off for a week. Overwatering might harm seeds so keep them mildly damp. In 14-21 days seedlings emerge.
