Binomial name: Fatsia japonica

Family: Araliaceae

Characteristics: Evergreen shrub with large glossy green leaves, which grows between 1-3m. The name fatsi is an approximation of the Japanese word for 'eight', referring to the eight leaf lobes.

Seeds per packet: 10

Description: Seed can be sown throughout the year indoors in a mini glasshouse.

Planting medium: Seed raising mix (preferably organic).

Optimum germination temperature: 21°C.

  1. Create a mini glasshouse. Follow instructions here
  2. Lightly press the seeds into the seed raising mix at a depth of 3mm. Space seeds about 1cm apart from each other. Cover with a light sprinkle of soil. Use a spray mist to moisten seeds so seeds are not disturbed. 
  3. Put lid on container to speed up germination, as it increases heat and conserves moisture.
  4. Put mini glasshouse in indirect sun. Do not put in direct sun, as this will dry the planting medium. 
  5. Put container on heat pad or near a heat source. Keep an eye on the soil and container. Keep moist, but if too much moisture builds up, take the cover off for a bit to allow excess moisture to evaporate.
  6. Germination should be between 30-90 days.
  7. Gently move seedlings to individual containers when they are 3cm high.
