But I really recommend opting to take a few cuttings or seed pods and growing it yourself. Once your plant is established, you will have a neverending source of sage at your disposal!
I don 8767 t think you need to use paper towels with sunflowers as planting them after sprouting can add more stress to them. They typically grow easy enough directly in soil.
My seed starting attempts last year were a total flop. First I didn 8767 t water them enough, then I watered them too much and the cats don 8767 t help anything. I did manage to transplant some of the tomatoes, but everything else went on the compost pile. I have only one window in the house that gets enough sunlight, but your set-up with the grow lights is beautiful. I 8767 ve considered putting up a small greenhouse too. I guess it 8767 s time to make a decision and get some seeds planted for this year. 🙂
Since the Balloon plant is native to South Africa, it is only a perennial in USDA Zones 8-65 (some say 9-65). It can be weedy in tropical areas. In the cooler zones it is grown as an annual. It is fast growing but gets large so this is one you may want to start indoors before the last frost or buy an already growing plant. This milkweed will get about 9-6 feet tall and about 8 feet wide.
Very interesting. The first ones you planted may have been F6 hybrids which are two different plants crossed to give a super consistent child plant but then the following grandchildren plants can have all sorts of different traits.
How long will this plant need to grow before its viable to harvest? I use kratom powder instead of opiates to control my pain and would like to supply myself.
The other source of confusion is that it is very similar in appearance to Asclepias fruticosa (which has also been renamed to Gomphocarpus fruticosus). The difference is that G. fruticosus is a smaller plant than G. physocarpus and the seed pod is shaped a little different. For G. fruticosus, the seed pod is slightly oblong and can resemble a swan which is where the name 8775 Swan plant 8776 came from. G. physocarpus has a seed pod that is more rounded and thus became known as 8775 Balloon plant 8776 . Now the two common names of 8775 swan 8776 and 8775 balloon 8776 plant are interchanged between both species.
Really, neem oil is a great preventative for nearly any pest problem that salvia apiana may develop. If you have worsening conditions from any of these pests, you can opt to use an insecticidal soap with neem oil blended into it and coat all surfaces of the plant. This should eliminate your pests for good, and regular applications of neem oil will keep them at bay.
Covering your seedlings with a plastic cover during germination will trap moisture and improve germination rates. Because I reuse commercial cellpacks for indoor seed starting, they fit neatly into planting trays with matching plastic dome covers.

I planted sunflowers for the very first time last year just after the first frost. I am not sure the name of the sunflowers I have. I do know they were grown right here in NW Washington. I do not have a green thumb at all and let me tell you, my sunflowers are so beautiful. At first I was worried because I didn 8767 t see anything coming up. You just have to be patient. I planted mine about 6 8798 down and I put two to three seeds per hole. I am so glad I did because when they got to the point to where they started to bloom, I had sunflowers everywhere. They are also a joy to look at. Such a gorgeous flower indeed.
