For best results, start seeds indoors in trays or punnets. Sow seeds onto well drained, moist, seed raising mix and cover with a light sprinkling of soil. Water thoroughly. Keep in a warm and moist, light-filled position. Transplant when the seedlings are large enough to handle. Take extra care to avoid disturbing the roots. Space approx 35cm apart. In the wilderness, these naturally grow in rather swampy areas so keep your Billy Buttons well watered, but in good draining soil. Established plants are frost tolerant.
