Red hot poker plants are truly aptly named with their orange, red and yellow flower spikes that look like blazing torches. These South African natives are popular ornamental perennials which crave sun and attract Butterflies and Hummingbirds while being deer resistant. Red hot poker plants are easy to grow in well-draining soil.

Growing Shrimp Plants From Seeds

Torch lily seeds will require full sun, well-draining soil and plenty of organic matter.

Before sowing, give them a cold treatment for 4 weeks.

Place seeds in a baggie in the refrigerator for up to one month.

Once the seeds have chilled, they are ready to plant.

Sow seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before planting out.

Use a good potting mixture in pots which are several inches deep to preserve the taproot.

Sow 3 seeds in each container and lightly dust with soil.

Keep the containers where temperatures are 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (21-23 C.) and evenly moist.

Expect germination in 21 to 28 days.

In warm regions, you can also direct sow the seeds in prepared garden beds.

When plants are small clumps several inches wide, transplant them to the flower bed after hardening them off.

Growing Red Hot Poker Seeds

With a little luck and good care, red hot poker seed propagation should be successful and you will have some mini-me torch lilies in pots.

It isn’t a good idea to continue to grow the plants in containers since they have a fairly long taproot.

Moving them to a garden space with fun sun and porous soil is the best way to grow red hot pokers.

Expose indoor grown plants gradually to outside conditions over the course of a week to help them adjust and avoid shock.

Set the plants into the soil at the same level at which they were growing in the containers.

If you get them in the ground early enough, you should expect a bloom the first year.

Remove spent flower spikes as they occur and cut the foliage back in late winter to early spring to allow new leaves room to grow.

Provide mulch over the root zone in northern climates to protect the plant from cold.

Divide you pokers every few years to promote blooming and dense clumps.

These are very easy plants to grow and you can save seeds or even baby clumps to trade with your garden friends.

***Note: It is normal for tropical seed germination to be sporadic from as little as 30 days to 6 months or more- so patience is required. Buyers should do their own research for plant uses if needed.


BE PREPARED - Some Seed can be somewhat difficult to germinate - much patience and time may be required - please don't be wondering why the seeds have not germinated after short periods of time. This is normal. Several months will be needed for some seed.


Some seeds require some experience in growing. We provide germination guidance and recommend that you do some research before ordering if you feel unsure. Growing plants from seed is supposed to be fun. Sometimes it is successful and sometimes not- this is the way it is with gardening. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. We will always send you viable seeds


Seed is a live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and reasonable weather during the growing period. These factors are totally out of the sellers control, and germination and growing results are the buyer's responsibility and risk.
