It is best to grow Setcreasea from cuttings. If you plan to grow from seed then start off outdoors. Sow the seed in the autumn using fresh seed, lightly cover once sown.
The plants should be grown about 30 to 45 cm apart, and planted in a sunny area of the garden that has a dry course soil.
It is possible to start off indoors, it will take about a month and a half for Setcreasea to germinate at 20 degrees centigrade. Transplant the seedlings outdoor in mid-spring.
It is easy to look after Setcreasea plants, they are untidy so cut back sprawling plants. Water occasionally, once the soil has become bone dry.
If you require more plants then it is best to propagate them from cuttings.
