Sowing and cultivation 

A 60-day cold stratification is necessary to ensure germination of Canada weedweed seeds.

Mix the seeds with a moist substrate (vermiculite, perlite or sand) and place them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for 60 days.

You can then sow the seeds 5 mm deep. Do not let the potting soil dry out during germination, which takes about 15 days.

The desmodia can adapt to several types of soil, but prefers cool or humid places.
